MCC’s 20th Anniversary Media Toolkit

In January 2024, MCC celebrates 20 Years of Reducing Poverty Through Economic Growth.

In 2004, President George W. Bush launched the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), a U.S. Government development agency employing innovative, cost-effective, and data-driven approaches to reduce global poverty.

MCC partners with countries committed to just and democratic governance, economic freedom, and investing in their populations. Over the past 20 years, MCC has invested nearly $17 billion in aid across 47 low-income and lower-middle-income countries across six continents, with programs estimated to impact nearly 400 million people globally.

Join us in commemorating this milestone!
