USAID and Peace Corps completed a jointly-funded and managed Performance Evaluation of the SPA Program from 2013 to 2017. SPA catalyzes the capacity of host country individuals, organizations, and communities to meet their own development needs and priorities. The evaluation found that SPA projects were remarkably successful in implementation and impact, resonated with the community years after the grant ended, and have led to increased development activities in communities in each country. USAID and Peace Corps are using this evaluation to better understand which drivers of locally-led programming ultimately lead to sustainable development outcomes, contributing to shared learning about what the Journey to Self-Reliance looks like from the ground up.
