Pristina, September 15 - USAID/Kosovo Acting Mission Director Chris Edwards and President of the Republic of Kosovo Atifete Jahjaga today signed an amendment to the bilateral Development Objective Grant Agreement signed between the two governments in December 2013.

With this Amendment, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will obligate an additional $34,334,636 in funds to support a range of activities in Kosovo, including programs to support improved rule of law and governance, increased investment and private sector employment, and enhanced human capital.

This is the fourth amendment to the Agreement, which brings the total obligated amount to $75,328,664 in funding to support Kosovo’s development.

Only by achieving these interconnected objectives will Kosovo be able to integrate into Western European and Trans-Atlantic structures, while ensuring prosperity and stability at home for all of its people.
