The Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) are pleased to announce the launch of the Foreign Assistance Dashboard (www.foreignassistance.gov). This website provides a visual presentation of and access to key foreign assistance budget and appropriation data for the Department of State and USAID.

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 recently issued Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR) highlights the importance of embracing transparency and holding ourselves accountable for achieving results.

The goal of the Foreign Assistance Dashboard is to give a wide variety of stakeholders, including U.S. citizens, civil society organizations, the Congress, U.S. Government agencies, donors, and partner country governments the ability to examine, research and track U.S. Government foreign assistance investments in an accessible and easy-to-understand format. The Foreign Assistance Dashboard enables the United States to take a huge step forward in becoming a leader in aid transparency.

Currently, the Foreign Assistance Dashboard includes Department of State and USAID foreign assistance request and appropriations data. Future versions of the site plan to incorporate budget, financial, program, and performance data in a standard form from all U.S. Government agencies receiving or implementing foreign assistance.
