Letter to Congress on Supplemental International Assistance
The following letter was sent to the appropriations committees in the House and Senate.
Dear Chairwoman Granger, Chairwoman Murray, Ranking Member DeLauro, and Vice Chairwoman Collins:
As Members of InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.-based NGOs that implement and advocate for U.S. humanitarian, health, development, and democracy programs, we applaud the administration’s request for supplemental international assistance that supports humanitarian, food security, and resilience needs globally. We urge Congress to use the amounts requested as a floor to provide robust funding to address the compounding effects of the conflict in Ukraine and other stressors. We are grateful for the supplemental resources Congress has provided since the start of this conflict, but global needs are far outpacing existing funding resources.
We encourage Congress to enact robust supplemental funding for global humanitarian, food security, and resilience programs to save lives, advance U.S. global leadership, and strengthen security and prosperity here at home and around the world.
