Budget & Appropriations

One of InterAction’s core priorities is encouraging robust U.S. investment in fighting poverty around the globe. 

Fiscal Year 2019

The FY2019 appropriations process has begun and InterAction is fully engaging with Congress to ensure the U.S. remains focused on ending global poverty and on helping people make better lives for themselves and their families, all around the globe. Check out Choose to Invest, our leading budget advocacy tool! It is filled with helpful information at your fingertips, including background information, helpful charts and key facts about each program we support.

We can also help you contact your Member of Congress so you can tell them to support robust funding levels for the International Affairs Budget and the poverty-focused development and humanitarian accounts.

Budget Table

Our budget table displays past and proposed funding levels for key humanitarian and poverty-focused development assistance accounts. It tracks the administration’s budget request, House and Senate proposals, passed budgets and compares them to InterAction’s recommended investment levels.
