Florida Congresswoman “Deeply Concerned” Over USAID Efforts in Haiti

“I’m deeply concerned about the findings of the most recent GAO report on U.S. assistance for reconstruction efforts in Haiti,” she said in a statement. “More than three years after the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010, we find that much of the assistance that the U.S. has provided Haiti for reconstruction efforts has suffered from ineffective stewardship on the part of USAID. This level of performance is unacceptable, and the people of Haiti deserve better.”

Last year, Ros-Lehtinen, who chairs the Middle east and North Africa Subcommittee, and ranking member Howard Berman, a Democrat, asked the GAO to investigate reconstruction efforts in the Caribbean country, particularly those related to shelters and the Caracol Industrial Park in Haiti, in which the US is a partner. via Caribbean Journal
