FinCEN’s Strategic Plan


The mission of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network is to safeguard the financial system from illicit use, combat money laundering and its related crimes including terrorism, and promote national security through the strategic use of financial authorities and the collection, analysis, and dissemination of financial intelligence.


The Treasury FY 2022–2026 Strategic Plan reflects the breadth of Treasury’s mission and outlines the Department’s longer-term goals.
