On the Foreign Assistance Dashboard, U.S. agencies
are shown as carrying out their missions through “Organizational Units.” Agency
organizational units may be Country, Regional, or Functional offices or other administrative
entities with specific authorities. These organizational units are located overseas
or in the United States. Countries may receive funding from any combination of the
three organizational units described below. The sum of data displayed on the Country,
Regional, and Functional office pages totals 100% of the total foreign assistance,
as reported on the Dashboard. Explore below for more information about each type
of organizational unit or to search specific units.
Country specific offices are located overseas. Country offices implement foreign
assistance programs within that one discrete country. Country-level programs and
sector focus may vary by agency.
Regional offices are located both in the United States, primarily in Washington,
DC, and overseas. Regionally focused offices provide support that crosses geographic
boundaries. These offices support activities in multiple countries, typically those
with a limited agency presence.
Functional offices are located in the United States, primarily in Washington, DC,
and implement programs that are sector specific or world-wide in nature. These programs
are generally focused on one particular issue, such as health, human rights, counternarcotics,
