Bureau for Europe and Eurasia

On behalf of the American people, USAID’s Bureau for Europe and Eurasia (E&E) partners to promote resilient and democratic societies, strengthen economic growth and energy security, and support European-Atlantic integration to realize a region that is whole, free, and at peace. USAID responds to opportunities and challenges in the region through innovative, sustainable, and replicable programs that help support our partner countries in E&E in their continuing transitions to stable, prosperous, free-market, pluralistic democracies. In Fiscal Year 2015, USAID and the Department of State jointly provided over $450 million in development assistance to programs in the Europe & Eurasia region.

USAID has Missions, offices, or programs in Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus, Georgia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Russia, Serbia, and Ukraine. The Bureau also manages U.S. assistance to the International Fund for Ireland.

In Washington, the Bureau for Europe and Eurasia comprises four offices that support our mission.

  • The Office of the Assistant Administrator (EE/AA) directs and supervises all activities of the Bureau and its overseas operations. The Office also includes the Administrative Management Staff (EE/AMS), that oversees management activities such as personnel assignment, organization management, and administrative support.
  • The Program Office (EE/PO) provides leadership for Bureau planning, program policy development, operating and program budget planning and implementation, performance monitoring, reporting, and evaluation, as well as support for project development and implementation. The Office is comprised of two divisions: the Strategic Planning and Analysis Division and the Financial Services Division.
  • The Technical Support Office (EE/TSO) provides expertise, analysis, and project management in support of the Bureau’s core objective of pursuing democratic governance and economic reform as mutually reinforcing objectives. Open, democratic, low-corruption societies are the most economically competitive, and progress in these areas is crucial to Euro-Atlantic integration. TSO is organized into three divisions: Democracy and Governance, Economic Growth, and Energy.
  • The Office of Europe and Eurasia Country Affairs (EE/EECA) provides field Mission representation in Washington and provides the Bureau and interagency colleagues with resident expertise on country conditions and on USAID’s programs to inform decisions, policies, and priorities.
