Department of State, USAID launch Foreign Assistance Dashboard

The Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) today announced the launch of the newly developed Foreign Assistance Dashboard.

The website, which was created in response to the principles of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and President Obama’s Open Government Initiative, visually presents and gives access to key Department of State and USAID foreign assistance budget and appropriations data.

As the State Department explains on its website,

“The goal of the Foreign Assistance Dashboard is to give a variety of stakeholders, including U.S. citizens, civil society organizations, the Congress, U.S. Government agencies, donors, and partner country governments the ability to examine, research and track U.S. Government foreign assistance investments in an accessible and easy-to-understand format. The Foreign Assistance Dashboard enables the United States to take a huge step forward in becoming a leader in aid transparency.”
