Country Contributions Policy

August 10, 2023


  • 1 The MCA Modernization Act defines LICs for MCC as the 75 countries with the lowest per capita income as identified by the World Bank. LMICs are countries that have a per capita income that is not greater than the World Bank’s lower middle income / upper middle income country threshold, but are not among the 75 lowest per capita income countries as identified by the World Bank. For more information, see the Candidate Country Report.
  • 2 Though MCC currently uses the term “subsequent compact” rather than “second compact”, the existing Guidance on Second Compacts refers to “second compacts”, so this policy uses that term when referring to that specific guidance document.
