Food for Peace Act, Section 202(E) FY 2017 Snapshot

Speeches Shim

While Food for Peace has provided food assistance around the world for more than 60 years, additional flexibility provided in the Agriculture Act of 2014 significantly impacted both emergency and development food assistance programs. The Agricultural Act of 2014 instituted changes to the Food for Peace Act: increased available Title II Section 202(e) funds and expanded definition of Section 202(e) funds to authorize its use to: a) Fund development activities previously supported by monetization; and b) Enhance any existing Title II program. 

This snapshot provides an overview of Section 202(e) funds and flexibility, including its benefits and limitations, as well as information about fiscal year 2017 grants and regional highlights.
