From the Document, "Foreign assistance is an instrument of U.S. policy through which the U.S. government provides resources to another country's government, civil society, or other private sector entity on a grant or concessional loan basis. Most U.S. foreign assistance is administered by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID); the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC); the U.S. Departments of State, Agriculture, the Treasury, and Defense (DOD); or is channeled through multilateral organizations. U.S. foreign assistance can take many forms. On average, about 2% of aid is provided as direct budget support (cash) to foreign governments. More often, aid is provided through projects implemented by U.S. and international agencies, contractors, or nongovernmental organizations."
