Support of Locally Led Development
December 9, 2021
CCIH joined other faith-based actors and humanitarian organizations in sending a letter to USAID Administrator Samantha Power in support of the agency’s commitment to make foreign assistance more responsive and centered on the needs and aspirations of local actors. The letter expressed support for placing more trust and decision-making power in our foreign service nationals, and also expressed a commitment to help USAID achieve its near-term goal that 25 percent of U.S. foreign assistance directly fund authentically local, autonomous organizations, and its longer-term target to ensure 50 percent of assistance funds local voices by the end of the decade.
