Paraguay Threshold Program, Stage II

The Paraguay Threshold Program, Stage II's end date was July 31, 2012. The Threshold Program is now closed.

The second, or “stage II,” Millennium Challenge Corporation threshold program with Paraguay built upon the substantial achievements of the initial threshold program. It targeted improved performance on the Control of Corruption and Rule of Law Indicators on the scorecard MCC produces to determine elibility for a compact.

The $30.3 million program focused on anti-corruption efforts in law enforcement, customs, and the healthcare, and judicial sectors. The objective of the program was not only to reduce opportunities for corruption and increase successful prosecution of wrongdoers, but also to improve public opinion of the government’s efforts in these areas and to reinforce Paraguay’s commitment to combating corruption.
