About West Bank and Gaza

USAID has been the principal U.S. government agency administering the United States’ foreign assistance program in the West Bank and Gaza since 1994. The goal of our programs is the achievement of a just and lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, while addressing the aspirations of Palestinians for economic opportunity, effective governance, youth development, and humanitarian needs. USAID activities have strengthened the accountability of public sector institutions; improved modern education and health approaches; targeted key infrastructure needs in water, wastewater treatment and sanitation, and road networks; built private sector-led development, investment, and employment growth; and expanded the capacity to respond to critical humanitarian assistance needs in Gaza. These efforts help build a more democratic, stable, and secure region benefiting Palestinians, Israelis, and Americans.
