Speeches Shim

Consistent with section 15011(b)(1)(B) of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (P.L. 116-136) (CARES Act), the Secretary of State and the Administrator of USAID jointly submit to the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee this combined report on the proposed uses of covered funds appropriated by the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020 (P.L. 116-123) (COVID-19 Supplemental) and the CARES Act.

Consistent with the joint Strategy for Supplemental Funding to Prevent, Prepare for, and Respond to Coronavirus Abroad, the Department of State and USAID will utilize resources from the COVID-19 Supplemental and the CARES Act to accomplish the following:

  • Pillar I: Protect American citizens and the U.S. Government community overseas, facilitate the continued work of the U.S. Government overseas, and communicate effectively;
  • Pillar II: Prevent, prepare for, respond to, and bolster health institutions to address the pandemic of COVID-19 and the possible re-emergence of the disease;
  • Pillar III: Prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19 in existing complex emergency responses, and address the potential humanitarian consequences of the pandemic; and
  • Pillar IV: Prepare for, mitigate, and address possible second-order economic, civilian-security, stabilization, and governance impacts of COVID-19, in part to prevent development backsliding.
