Brookings Senior Fellow Examines Potential Impact Of Funding Delays, Proposed Budget Cuts On U.S. Foreign Aid

Brookings Institution’s “Up Front”: Erratic budget processes threaten U.S. foreign aid
George Ingram, senior fellow for global economy and development at Brookings Institution, discusses the potential impact of funding delays and proposed budget cuts on the U.S. government’s support for foreign assistance programs, writing, “Rescissions, proposed budget cuts, and delayed appropriations sully the reputation of the United States, undermine the effectiveness of U.S. assistance, hinder our intended objectives, and constitute a disservice to our aid workers and to country partners. Policymakers need to recognize these ramifications and return the aid budget to regular order” (6/4).
