Abstract:

United States economic assistance for the Palestinians has averaged about 85 million per year since Israel and the PLO signed the 1993 Declaration of Principles. Congress wants to ensure that U.S. assistance is used for legitimate humanitarian projects and that no U.S. aid is diverted for military or terrorist use against Israel. United States Aid to the Palestinians provides a description of the aid program and tables with annual amounts for the Palestinians. The report will be updated as necessary.
