US Foreign Assistance Dashboard Tracker

Share

Twenty-two US government departments and agencies spend or manage foreign aid. This makes it difficult to answer simple questions such as “how much foreign aid does the United States invest in Tanzania?” or “how much foreign aid supports democracy promotion?” The Obama administration created the Foreign Assistance Dashboard to be the one-stop-shop for all US foreign aid spending data. The problem? The data is incomplete. CGD’s US Foreign Assistance Dashboard Tracker is designed to encourage and applaud agencies when they report their data.

Reading the tracker

Agencies are ranked according to the number of years of data they have published to the Foreign Assistance Dashboard across four categories of data: planning, obligation, spent, and implementation. Agencies that have not published data do not have a rank. Read more.
