Since 2003, USAID has been a major contributor to the United States' reconstruction efforts in Iraq. Collaborating with other U.S. Government agencies, USAID works closely with the Government of Iraq, provincial and local governments, international institutions and a network of partners including non-governmental organizations, local community groups and Iraqi citizens.

USAID has implemented activities designed to strengthen infrastructure, stabilize communities, foster economic and agricultural growth and help the various levels of government better represent and respond to the needs of the Iraqi people.

With the U.S. transition to civilian leadership in Iraq, USAID has continued to help Iraqis use their own resources to build a self-reliant and prosperous country.
