Under President Obama’s administration, and with our advocacy and support from Congress, funding for UXO clearance and support has more than tripled. And today, the President announced that the U.S. will double its annual funding toward this effort over the next three years.

These critical resources support the teams of clearance workers, as well as additional projects like a national survey to locate unexploded ordnance, support for survivors, and better public awareness on how to avoid these bombs.
