60+ NGOs urge Congress to support supplemental humanitarian assistance


As Members and partners of InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.-based NGOs that implement and advocate for U.S. humanitarian, health, development, and democracy programs, we welcome the inclusion of more than $10 billion in humanitarian assistance in the Senate’s supplemental package to address global needs.

While not endorsing the bill in its entirety, we appreciate the bipartisan recognition that supplemental humanitarian assistance is necessary and prudent, and we urge all members of Congress to support this funding to address humanitarian needs. We also acknowledge concerning policy provisions included in the supplemental package that impact the lives of people we work with and require additional analysis and debate.

Global humanitarian needs are at near record high as conflict, hunger, and displacement impact countless lives around the world. These supplemental funds will save lives, demonstrate U.S. leadership, and foster a more secure world; nevertheless, they cannot be a substitute for strong, consistent base appropriations.

We look forward to continuing to work with Congress to protect supplemental humanitarian and development assistance in Fiscal Year 2024 and to engage productively on additional policies that impact the lives of people all over the world.
