U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo Tracey Ann Jacobson, USAID/Kosovo Mission Director Maureen A. Shauket and President of the Republic of Kosovo Atifete Jahjaga today signed a bilateral Development Objective Grant Agreement between the two governments.

The document outlines the U.S. Government commitment to provide $37,432,028 in funds to support a broad range of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) activities in Kosovo. The funds will be used for rule of law and governance activities, activities to increase investment and private sector employment, and programs to enhance human capital in Kosovo. 

"The U.S. Government remains committed to supporting Kosovo's efforts to strengthen its democracy through investments that promote rule of law and boost its attractiveness as a destination for investment," said Ambassador Jacobson.  "We are proud that USAID is partnering with Kosovo's government, private sector, and civil society to provide valuable training and tools that can help unleash Kosovo's full potential."

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) provides economic and humanitarian assistance worldwide for over 50 years.
