USAID to Allocate $27 Million for Armenia Programs

USAID official, Roberta Mahoney

YEREVAN—USAID Senior Deputy Assistant Administrator for Europe and Eurasia Roberta Mahoney arrived in Armenia on April 30 and her visit highlighted USAID’s nearly two decades of strong partnership with Armenia.

The U.S. Government will provide $27 million assistance to Armenia this year, aimed at reducing poverty, improving rule of law, providing better access to health care and social benefits, and strengthening private sector and infrastructure.

During her four-day visit she met with representatives of the Armenian government, private sector, partner organizations and the Diaspora.

The parties discussed U.S.-Armenia bilateral relations, USAID assistance programs in the areas of democracy, economic growth, health and social reform, and Armenia’s development challenges.

Mahoney visited several USAID-supported projects in Yerevan, including the nearly established Microsoft Innovation Center and the Women’s Support Center which provides services for victims of domestic violence and their families.

    The question is how many cents of this “allocation” will actually go to benefit Armenians in Armenia and how many millions will be allocated by the corrupt USAID “experts” based in Georgia to their own pockets?

    USAID should spend this money on “reducing poverty, improving rule of law, providing better access to health care and social benefits, and strengthening private sector and infrastructure” in Anacostia/Washington, DC.
