Budget and Performance

The Peace Corps provides financial and performance information to assess progress toward achieving strategic objectives, demonstrating accountability, and increasing operational effectiveness.

Agency Financial Report

The Peace Corps Agency Financial Report (AFR) for fiscal year (FY) 2023 provides fiscal results and performance highlights for the reporting period between October 1, 2022, and September 30, 2023.

This report demonstrates to the President, Congress, and the American public how fiscal funds entrusted to the Peace Corps were used to achieve the agency’s mission of promoting world peace and friendship through community-based development and intercultural understanding.

Congressional Budget Justification

This budget request is an investment in a brighter and more equitable future for communities around the globe. If fully funded, it will enable the Peace Corps to sustain its current operations and begin to meet increasing demand from the IndoPacific, Africa, and Central America to bring the Peace Corps’ person-to-person diplomacy to communities where Volunteers are being invited to serve.

Moreover, the agency will continue its focus on harnessing the power of youth, recruiting more U.S. citizens to serve, and strengthening the systems that support Volunteer health and safety.

Strategic plan

The Peace Corps’ FY 2022-2026 Strategic Plan outlines three strategic objectives: Reimagine Service, Advance Equity, and Deliver Quality. These strategic objectives respond to the unique opportunity the agency had after it evacuated all Volunteers and Trainees worldwide in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This historic moment drove many innovations and inspired a far-reaching reimagination of service as the agency began returning its Volunteers to service two years later in March 2022.

The FY 2022-2026 Strategic Plan therefore enables the Peace Corps to continue to meet its mission of advancing world peace and friendship while returning Volunteers to service in new and strengthened ways
