USAID’s private sector programs advance productivity and create an environment that attracts investment and allows Palestinian businesses to access domestic, regional, and international markets. Technical assistance and grants, market access initiatives, and other support help Palestinian businesses recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

USAID is currently doing this through the following activity:

Small and Medium Enterprise Assistance for Recovery and Transition (SMART)

$40 million • Implemented by DAI Global, LLC • 2021-2025

The Small and Medium Enterprise Assistance for Recovery and Transition (SMART) activity revitalizes Palestinian small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and places them on a path to recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic. Assistance supports SMEs to regain productivity through a package of grants, technical assistance, and increased access to finance. SMART promotes economic growth and self-reliance in the West Bank and Gaza.
