Understanding the Data
One per cent of the federal budget supports the U.S. government's foreign assistance investments to further America's foreign policy interests on issues ranging from expanding free markets, combating extremism, ensuring stable democracies, and addressing the root causes of poverty, while simultaneously fostering global good will.
These diverse programs are implemented by many U.S. agencies, through a wide variety of partners. ForeignAssistance.gov consolidates all of this information into one central, standardized repository in accordance with the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Bulletin 12-01 - Guidance on Collection of U.S. Foreign Assistance Data
ForeignAssistance.gov reporting requirements incorporate all international data fields from the International Aid Transparency Initiative, domestic data fields for the U.S. Overseas Loans and Grants report (Greenbook), and other data elements.
