The European Recovery Program was a U.S. program that supplied nearly $13 billion to help finance rebuilding efforts in Europe in the wake of World War II. This program became known as the Marshall Plan because of George Marshall’s role in recognizing its importance and persuading Congress and the American people of its importance. Nearly 75 years later, the 17 nations that participated in the program continue to enjoy the peace and prosperity it helped secure for them.
