Term Definition
Dollar Trust Funds

These accounts established by the U. S. Treasury are for the purpose of recording expenditures against receipts held in trust, where USAID acts in a fiduciary capacity in carrying out specific purposes and programs in accordance with international agreements or U.S. statutory requirements. There is no connection between dollar trust fund accounts and separate dollar accounts required under the Appropriations Act for cash transfer assistance or nonproject sector assistance (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapter 628).
