Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,411,409 over two years to the Center for Global Development (CGD) to support their work placing two fellows in the Office of the Chief Economist at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). These placements will be done via the Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA).
CGD will use this funding to hire, train, and place the fellows, and to provide ongoing support. Open Philanthropy’s team believes that these placements will help improve the cost-effectiveness of US foreign aid.
This follows Open Philanthropy’s April 2022 support and falls within its focus area of global aid policy.
