Alternate Title: ForeignAssistance.gov [website]

"ForeignAssistance.gov is the U.S. Government's main tool for improving transparency in U.S. foreign assistance spending. Transparency and open data enable stakeholders and the general public to better understand U.S. foreign assistance investments around the world, make foreign aid more useful for development, and help hold ourselves more accountable. Since its launch, ForeignAssistance.gov has been working to establish standard data requirements across the U.S. Government, support agencies in quarterly data reporting, and develop a dynamic and user-friendly website. Its mission is to serve as a central repository where stakeholders can easily access and use U.S. Government foreign assistance budget, financial, and award information in a standardized and easy-to-understand format. ForeignAssistance.gov was created in response to the principles of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and President Obama's Open Government Initiative. The website supports the U.S.'s commitment to the International Aid Transparency Initiative by providing U.S. data in the internationally comparable format."
