MFAN Calls For Transparent, Evidence-Based Review Of U.S. Foreign Assistance To Central America

Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network: MFAN Co-Chairs Call for Transparency and Evidence in Review of Aid to Central America
In a statement delivered on behalf of MFAN, Co-chairs George Ingram, Lester Munson, and Tessie San Martin discuss a letter from MFAN sent to Secretary of State Michael Pompeo expressing concern over the recent State Department announcement regarding the reprogramming of U.S. foreign assistance to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras following a review of programs and activities in those countries. The co-chairs state, “To most effectively leverage American tax dollars and further American interests abroad, any review of our foreign assistance programs should be evidence-based and transparent. MFAN urges the Department of State to publish the methodology of this review, including all information and program evaluations used to determine effectiveness” (6/24).
