The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) is an innovative and independent U.S. foreign aid agency that is helping lead the fight against global poverty. Created by the U.S. Congress in January 2004, MCC is changing the conversation on how best to deliver smart U.S. foreign assistance by focusing on good policies, country ownership, and results. MCC is advancing American values and interests by reducing global poverty through economic growth. The MCC model fulfills this mission by focusing on policy reforms, economic growth opportunities that deliver tangible results and shared learning on what is and is not working. This approach makes development assistance more effective, improves the lives of the world’s poor and creates the markets of the future, with whom companies can do business and trade. MCC forms partnerships with some of the world’s poorest countries, but only those committed to: good governance economic freedom investments in their citizens MCC provides these well-performing countries with large-scale grants to fund country-led solutions for reducing poverty through sustainable economic growth.  MCC grants complement other U.S. and international development programs.There are two primary types of MCC grants:    Compacts are large, five-year grants for countries that pass MCC’s eligibility criteria.   Threshold programs are smaller grants awarded to countries that come close to passing these criteria and are firmly committed to improving their policy performance.   The Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, the U.S. Trade Representative, and the USAID Administrator serve on the MCC board along with four private sector representatives. Achievements MCC has approved over $8.4 billion in MCC Compact and Threshold Programs worldwide that support country-determined projects in such sectors as:   Agriculture and Irrigation Transportation (Roads, Bridges, Ports) Water Supply and Sanitation Access to Health Finance and Enterprise Development Anticorruption Initiatives Land Rights and Access Access to Education   Compact Countries    Armenia  Mali  Benin  Moldova  Burkina Faso  Mongolia  Cape Verde  Morocco  El Salvador  Mozambique  Georgia  Namibia  Ghana  Nicaragua  Honduras  Philippines  Jordan  Senegal  Lesotho  Tanzania  Madagascar  Vanuatu   Threshold Program Countries     Albania  Paraguay  Burkina Faso  Peru  Guyana  Philippines  Indonesia  Rwanda  Jordan  Timor-Leste  Kenya  Tanzania  Kyrgyz Republic  Saõ Tomé and Principe  Liberia  Uganda  Malawi  Ukraine  Moldova  Zambia  Niger     Impact The aggressive implementation of compacts and threshold programs is promoting growth opportunities, opening markets, raising the standard of living, and creating a more prosperous future for some of the world’s poorest people:   Nearly 150,000 farmers have been trained, 3,878 enterprises assisted, and $66 million in agriculture and rural loans disbursed.
