Millennium Challenge Account: Implementation of a New U.S. Foreign Aid Initiative

Millennium Challenge Account: Implementation of a New U.S. Foreign Aid Initiative

Date: June 2, 2006
Creator: Nowels, Larry
Description: In a speech on March 14, 2002, President Bush outlined a proposal for a major new U.S. foreign aid initiative. The program, referred to as the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA), is managed by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and provides assistance, through a competitive selection process, to developing nations that are pursing political and economic reforms in three areas: ruling justly, investing in people, and fostering economic freedom. If fully implemented, the initiative would represent one of the largest increases in foreign aid spending in half a century, outpaced only by the Marshall Plan following World War II and the Latin America-focused Alliance for Progress in the early 1960s.
