Jordan is expected to receive $25 million (€19.6 million) in US funding for a program to strengthen democratic institutions. The Millennium Challenge Corporation grant would broaden public participation in political and electoral processes in Jordan, as well as increase government transparency and accountability. The program would supplement an initiative in Jordan designed to improve public administration, civil liberties, infrastructure and the economy. The MCC is a US government corporation that supports countries which promote democracy, economic freedom and govern well in other ways.
