Country Strategy

Haiti continues to struggle with severe poverty and malnutrition. These challenges are made worse by the country’s political instability and vulnerability to natural disasters. Our grantee partners in Haiti work with women and other underserved populations in eight of the country’s ten departments. They enhance food security in rural areas, foster local entrepreneurship, work to curb urban violence, and improve access to capital through savings and loan associations. These investments build community resilience and advance U.S. priorities in Haiti, including the Caribbean 2020 framework and the U.S.-Caribbean Resilience Partnership.

We awarded our first grant in Haiti in 1975. Since then, we have provided $25.5 million through 181 grants to local organizations.
