This brief looks at U.S. assistance to other countries through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), in cases where the U.S. has cut the funding following political developments such as coups d’etat or alleged electoral irregularities. The brief notes that while the U.S. suspended MCC money within days following coups in both Mauritania and Madagascar, MCC commitments in Honduras, worth more than $190 million, have not been put on hold after over 57 days following Honduras’ June 28, 2009 coup. The U.S. also froze MCC aid to Nicaragua just days following what the U.S. alleged were electoral irregularities in municipal elections.
