About the organization

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, and investments in their citizens.
