The U.S.-Mexico State Alliance Partnership is a collaborative, multi-branch program aimed at strengthening cooperation among state officials and institutions of both countries. The Partnership promotes and convenes binational exchanges among border legislators, attorneys general, treasurers, lieutenant governors and other officials to enhance the role of state officials to address shared public policy concerns that transcend international borders.
The Alliance Partnership promotes the integration of activities and outreach with other binational mechanisms so that concrete policy objectives and reforms can be achieved through a strategic, multi-branch and multi-jurisdictional approach. The Alliance partners, their respective members, networks and linkages comprise a broad and influential coalition that can affect change. The Alliance Partnership is an innovative mechanism of cooperation that enables dynamic synergies and cross-jurisdictional cooperation.
Financial support for the Alliance Partnership is provided by a grant of the USAID, along with significant in-kind and direct support by participating partners and their respective member states, as well as financial contributions by private sector stakeholders. The Alliance Partnership is administered by the Council of State Governments.
