On May 13, 2020, USAID and the Office of the Prime Minister of the
Republic of Armenia signed an amendment to the Development Objective
Cooperation Agreement for More Participatory, Effective and Accountable
Governance, adding $11.5 million in assistance funding.

This action brings the total amount of USAID assistance provided within the
framework of this Agreement to $51.4 million since its inception in 2013. The
Agreement advances broad-based democratic governance reforms through
promoting initiatives on transparency and accountability, local governance and
decentralization, as well as participatory and inclusive electoral and political
processes and rule of law.

USAID assistance additionally supports civil society and media programs to increase
the level of informed civic activism and promote access to diversified and objective
sources of information, with a special emphasis on media literacy.
USAID and the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Armenia also signed an
amendment to the Assistance Agreement for a More Competitive and Diversified
Private Sector, adding $7.5 million in assistance funding.

This action brings the total amount of USAID assistance provided within the
framework of this Agreement to $91.8 million since its inception in 2010. The
Agreement supports Armenia to achieve broad-based economic growth that
generates productive employment and promotes equality of opportunity. USAID
assistance focuses on key areas of strategic importance, such as agriculture, tourism,
energy, and water; facilitates innovation; enhances workforce skills; and creates a
more conducive business environment.

Additionally, it provides support for improved key infrastructure services, including
water and energy, vital for enterprise growth and development.
