The United States provided USD 42.3 billion of ODA in 2021, representing 0.18% of GNI. This was an increase of 14.37% in real terms in volume and an increase in share of GNI from 2020. ODA levels rose in 2020, and reached the highest volume ever in 2021. The United States has not committed to the 0.7% ODA/GNI target. Within the United States’ ODA portfolio in 2020, 99.2% was provided in the form of grants and 0.7% in the form of non-grants.
In 2021, the United States ranked 23rd among Development Assistance Committee (DAC) member countries when ODA is taken as a share of GNI (preliminary figures), and is the top DAC provider in terms of total ODA volume. The United States is the largest humanitarian partner, and it continued to provide close to half of gross bilateral ODA to fragile contexts in 2020, amongst the highest across the DAC. The largest share of gross bilateral ODA went to sub-Saharan Africa and to partner countries in the least-developed country (LDC) category.
