USAID’s Conflict Management and Mitigation (CMM) grants support Israelis and Palestinians, and Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel to address issues of common concern. USAID/West Bank and Gaza and the U.S. Department of State jointly manage these grants. CMM activities provide opportunities to cultivate solutions, reconcile differences, and promote greater understanding and mutual trust by working on common goals such as economic development, environment, health, education, sports, music, and information technology.

On behalf of USAID, it is my honor to welcome all of you to the inaugural meeting of the Partnership for Peace Fund Advisory Board.  The Nita M. Lowey Partnership for Peace Act or MEPPA tasked USAID and the Development Finance Corporation with building trust and relationships between Israelis and Palestinians programming $250 million over five years all with the goal of broadening the constituency for peace.  MEPPA also established this Advisory Board to provide strategic guidance to USAID for the implementation of the fund.  Board members, we are grateful to Congress for appointing you.  And we are grateful to all of you for the time and the energy and the enthusiasm that you have approached this important work.
