USAID Foreign Assistance Dashboard - Statistics on USG Foreign AID

Foreign Assistance Dashboard USAID and State Department have launched a foreign assistance dashboard with detailed information on the USG's worldwide technical assistance programs. The site contains information on a variety of indicators, including detailed statistics on aid per sector, organizational unit and country.

The numbers are based on annual Congressional Budget Justifications and annual appropriations bills. Other USG agencies that receive appropriated foreign assistance funds will be phased into the Foreign Assistance Dashboard over time.

The Foreign Assistance Dashboard was created in response to the principles of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and President Obama’s Open Government Initiative. The goal of the Foreign Assistance Dashboard is to enable a wide variety of stakeholders, including U.S. citizens, civil society organizations, the Congress, U.S. Government (USG) agencies, donors, and partner country governments, the ability to examine, research, and track USG foreign assistance investments in an accessible and easy-to-understand format.
