Foreign Military Financing for Fiscal Years 1999 - 2000


Foreign Military Financing (FMF) provides grants for the acquisition of U.S. defense equipment, services, and training. It is intended to promote U.S. national security by contributing to regional and global stability, strengthening military support for democratically-elected governments and containing transnational threats, including terrorism and trafficking in narcotics, weapons, and persons. These grants enable allies and friends to improve their defense capabilities and foster closer military relationships between the U.S. and recipient nations.
