DFC’s investments in critical and digital infrastructure create jobs, foster economic growth, improve access to essential services, and facilitate trade and regional connectivity.

Insufficient and inadequate infrastructure stifles productivity, reinforces poverty, and limits private sector engagement. 

DFC prioritizes transactions in high-quality infrastructure through support for seaports, roads, airports, and railways that connect communities to the opportunities of the global marketplace. Our investments also modernize transportation hubs and networks, allow for safe and open access to information technology networks, and secure supply chains for minerals critical to U.S. national security.

DFC’s infrastructure financing adheres to high standards for labor and the environment in quality projects that are responsive to local needs. With the private-sector-driven model DFC offers, the United States is helping to address the global gap for infrastructure financing, and at the same time raising the bar for the quality of infrastructure investment globally.
