Choose to Invest FY2017
For More Information:
Helping people living in the world’s poorest and most vulnerable places is vital to securing our nation, growing our economy and maintaining our moral leadership around the world.
InterAction, the nation’s leading policy advocate for international humanitarian relief and development programs, is proud to present our recommendations for poverty-fighting funding in FY2017.
Published annually by InterAction, Choose to Invest is an online educational resource designed to help members of Congress, congressional staff, and others working on appropriations questions related to key U.S. global development and humanitarian programs. Each budget account profile includes:
- A specific funding recommendation built on decades of field experience by InterAction members;
- A list of key program facts and a chart of previous funding levels; and
- A story illustrating the impact of the program in helping empower vulnerable communities across the globe.
As Congress moves into budget and appropriations season for FY2017, we hope Choose to Invest will continue to be a valuable, educational tool for members of Congress, their staff and other U.S. policymakers working to improve the lives of those living in extreme poverty.
