BEC Supports InterAction's request of no less than $51.9B for Foreign Assistance in FY19

BEC members joined InterAction's advocacy day on Capitol Hill on March 13th.

The Interaction community is comprised of various organizations championing differing priorities. The lobby day unified their voices behind two shared requests to Congress: 1) Adopt a final appropriation for the remainder of FY18 that provides the highest possible funding levels for humanitarian, health, and development accounts; 2) Fully fund poverty-focused international development and humanitarian assistance accounts in FY19 at no less than $59.1 billion.
