"The current federal budget, which allots $370 billion for the military, gives $22 billion for all nonmilitary spending abroad, including foreign aid grants, radio projects like Voice of America, and the budgets of the State Department and the United States Information Agency. Funding for foreign exchange programs, measured in constant dollars, fell by nearly one-third from 1993 to 2000, from $298 million to $211 million. This year it rose slightly, to $232 million."
