On August 3rd, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) initiated a review of unobligated foreign assistance funding that is set to expire at the end of the fiscal year on September 30th, 2019. It has been reported that OMB may submit a rescission package (a formal request to rescind existing unobligated funding back to the Treasury Department) to Congress by August 20th. The rescission package would propose to effectively cancel an undisclosed amount of unobligated foreign assistance funds. Until a proposal is submitted to Congress, the White House is limiting State Department and USAID obligations to 2% of available funding per day.
