Abstract:

The U.S. government plans to allocate about 918 million of the 1.14 billion in supplemental Haiti reconstruction funds available through the end of fiscal year 2012 to USAID and State. USAID and State plan to allocate 770 million and 148 million, respectively, to projects in three geographic regions of Haiti, selected for their development potential, and four key sectors 1 infrastructure and energy 2 governance and rule of law 3 health and other basic services and 4 food and economic security. About half of the total funding is intended for infrastructure and energy projects and an additional third is for governance and rule-of-law programs. State and USAID reported they had obligated over 184.3 million, or about 20 percent of the funding, as of March 2011. USAID provided most of this amount to fulfill the U.S. governments pledge of 120 million to the multidonor Haiti Reconstruction Fund. State and USAID reported that they obligated most of the remaining 64.3 million to a small number of bilateral activities, including projects to restore basic government functions.
