Working with Congress, the Executive branch, and other stakeholders, MFAN has earned a reputation for generating practical solutions to spur more effective and accountable U.S. foreign assistance, centered on the principles of accountability and locally led development.
Through education, advocacy, and convening, we advocate for programs that focus on long-term development outcomes and impact, including innovative approaches and models.
Since our creation in 2008, MFAN has been a steady, clear, and unifying voice in advancing foreign assistance effectiveness principles, regardless of the changing landscape or political leadership in Congress or the White House. Our work has yielded significant results that build on a bipartisan consensus on foreign assistance reforms that first began under President George W. Bush with the creation of PEPFAR in 2003 and the establishment of the MCC in 2004.
Since that time, several major bipartisan foreign assistance bills have been signed into law that include important accountability and transparency provisions advocated by MFAN. In addition to the Foreign Aid Transparency and Accountability Act (FATAA) of 2016, these bills include the Electrify Africa Act of 2016, the Water for the World Act of 2014, the Global Food Security Act of 2016, and the Better Utilization of Investments Leading to Development Act (BUILD) Act of 2018.
