USAID helps our partners by prioritizing programs that:

  • Show measurable impact
  • Incentivize reform
  • Diversify our partner base
  • Foster local capacity building
  • Mobilize domestic resources

At USAID, we always seek new ways to embrace entrepreneurship and creativity so we can better help our partner countries accelerate their progress on their Journey to Self-Reliance.

Our Acquisition and Assistance Strategy outlines the key changes we are making to become more innovative in our approach to development challenges, more transparent in our decisions, and even more strategic as we steward U.S. taxpayer investments. 

We are streamlining the ways we approach program design and procurement by using new and innovative methods of collaboration, diversifying our partner base, and elevating local leadership and knowledge.
