USAID Foreign Assistance Data Available In Online Tool

In a media note, the State Department and USAID announce that “USAID’s foreign assistance obligation and expenditure data is now available on the Foreign Assistance Dashboard (www.foreignassistance.gov).” According to the note, “The Foreign Assistance Dashboard serves as a tool for users to understand the impact of U.S. foreign assistance funding by country, sector, initiative, and agency in an easy-to-understand format. The site provides a visual presentation of foreign assistance data in a standard and user-friendly way, and has become the U.S. Government’s main tool for improving foreign aid transparency.” Data in the tool is from fiscal years 2009 through 2011 and will be updated regularly, the media note states (6/25).
