This report is the first of three required reports listed above. Report on Countries That Are Candidates for Millennium Challenge Compact Eligibility for Fiscal Year 2017 and Countries That Would Be Candidates but for Legal Prohibitions Candidate Countries for FY 2017 The Act requires the identification of all countries that are candidate countries for FY 2017 and the identification of all countries that would be candidate countries but for specified legal prohibitions on assistance. Under the terms of the Act, sections 606(a) and (b) set forth the two income tests countries must satisfy to be candidate countries.1 However, for FY 2016, those categories were defined by MCC’s FY 2016 appropriations act, the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2016 (the FY 2016 SFOAA), which is found at Division K of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Pub. L. 114– 113). Specifically, the FY 2016 SFOAA used the same definitions that have been used since the FY 2012 appropriations act and defines low income candidate countries as the 75 poorest countries as identified by the World Bank and provided that a country that changes during the fiscal year from low income to lower middle income (or vice versa) will retain its candidacy status in its former income category for the fiscal year of transition and the two subsequent fiscal years. Assuming these definitions will be used again for FY 2017, MCC is using them for purposes of this report.2 Under the redefined categories, a country will be a candidate country for FY 2017 if it: Meets one of the following tests: Has a per capita income that is not greater than the World Bank’s lower middle income country threshold for Summary This report to Congress is provided in accordance with section 608(a) of the Millennium Challenge Act of 2003, as amended, 22 U.S.C. §§ 7701, 7707(a) (the Act). The Act authorizes the provision of assistance for global development through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) for countries that enter into a Millennium Challenge Compact with the United States to support policies and programs that advance the progress of such countries to achieve lasting economic growth and poverty reduction. The Act requires MCC to take a number of steps in selecting countries with which MCC will seek to enter into a compact, including determining the countries that will be eligible countries for fiscal year (FY) 2017 based on (a) a country’s demonstrated commitment to (i) just and democratic governance, (ii) economic freedom, and (iii) investments in its people; (b) the opportunity to reduce poverty and generate economic growth in the country; and (c) the availability of funds to MCC. These steps include the submission of reports to the congressional committees specified in the Act and the publication of notices in the Federal Register that identify: The countries that are ‘‘candidate countries’’ for FY 2017 based on their per capita income levels and their eligibility to receive assistance under U.S. law and countries that would be candidate countries but for specified legal prohibitions on assistance (section 608(a) of the Act); The criteria and methodology that the MCC Board of Directors (Board) will use to measure and evaluate the relative policy performance of the ‘‘candidate countries’’ consistent with the requirements of subsections (a) and (b) of section 607 of the Act in order to determine ‘‘eligible countries’’ from among the ‘‘candidate countries’’ (section 608(b) of the Act); and The list of countries determined by the Board to be ‘‘eligible countries’’ for FY 2017, identification of such countries with which the Board will seek to enter into compacts, and a justification for such eligibility PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1 Sections 606(a) and (b) of the Act provide that a country will be a candidate country for purposes of eligibility if it (1) has a per capita income equal to or less than the historical ceiling of the International Development Association eligibility for the fiscal year involved (the ‘‘low income category’’) or (2) is classified as a lower middle income country in the then most recent edition of the World Development Report for Reconstruction and Development published by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and has an income greater than the historical ceiling for International Development Association eligibility for the fiscal year involved (the ‘‘lower middle income category’’); and is not ineligible to receive U.S. economic assistance under part I of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended (the Foreign Assistance Act), by reason of the application of the Foreign Assistance Act or any other provision of law. 2 If the language relating to the definition of low income candidate countries is not enacted or is changed for MCC’s FY 2017 appropriations act, MCC will revisit the selection process once the FY 2017 appropriations act is enacted and will conduct the selection process in accordance with the Act and applicable provisions for FY 2017.
