On the Foreign Assistance Dashboard, U.S. agencies are shown as carrying out their missions through
“Organizational Units.” Agency organizational units may be Country, Regional, or Functional offices
or other administrative entities with specific authorities. These organizational units are located

administers the funds and does not fully necessarily represent the populations of countries or regions
benefitting from funding. Explore below for more information about each type of organizational unit

Country specific offices are located overseas. Country offices implement foreign
assistance programs within that one discrete country. Country-level programs and

Regional offices are located both in the United States, primarily in Washington,

and implement programs that are sector specific or world-wide in nature. These programs
are generally focused on one particular issue, such as health, human rights, counternarcotics,
