H.R. 6006: Lost Boys and Girls Rebuilding Infrastructure to Sustain Enduring Peace in South Sudan Act

Title: Lost Boys and Girls Rebuilding Infrastructure to Sustain Enduring Peace in South Sudan Act

Introduced: Sep 13, 2016 (114th Congress)

Sponsor: Rep. Karen Bass [D-CA37]

Status: Referred to Committee - Referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Summary: Lost Boys and Girls Rebuilding Infrastructure to Sustain Enduring Peace in South Sudan Act or the Lost Boys and Girls RISE Act This bill directs the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to establish a three-year pilot program to provide fellowships to up to 500 eligible individuals to assist in developing agricultural, business development, educational, medical, technological, or transportation infrastructure in South Sudan. (The program may begin after the Department of State determines that it is safe for U.S. citizens, especially citizens of Sudanese or South Sudanese descent, to travel to South Sudan and lifts the general travel warning for South Sudan.) It is the sense of Congress that USAID should: (1) consult with members of the Lost Boys and Lost Girls of Sudan community in the United States for purposes of identifying potential participants, and (2) consider individuals who are recommended to USAID by a member of Congress.
