The Inter-American Foundationis an independent Federal agency that 
supports social and economic developmentin Latin America and the 
Caribbean. It makes grantsprimarily to private, local, and community 
organizations that carry out self-help projects.
The Inter-American Foundation (IAF) was created in 1969 (22 U.S.C. 290f) 
as an experimental U.S. foreign assistance program. IAF works in Latin 
America and the Caribbean to promote equitable, participatory, and 
sustainable self-help development by awarding grants directly to local 
organizations throughout the region. It also enters into partnerships 
with public and private sector entities to scale up support and mobilize 
local, national, and international resources for grassroots development. 
From all of its innovative funding experiences, IAF extracts lessons 
learned and best practices to share with other donors and development 
practitioners throughout the hemisphere.
    IAF is governed by a nine-person Board of Directors appointed by the 
President with the advice and consent of the Senate. Six members are 
drawn from the private sector and three from the Federal Government. The 
Board of Directors appoints the President of IAF.
