On March 15, 2022, President Biden signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act for fiscal year (FY) 2022. USAID is pleased to see significant increases in U.S. assistance for the West Bank and Gaza directed by Congress, up from $75 million in Economic Support Fund supported assistance in FY 2020 and FY 2021 to $219 million in FY 2022. This is in addition to $50 million directed for the second year of the Nita M. Lowey Middle East Partnership for Peace Act (MEPPA). The nearly threefold increase in economic and development assistance will greatly increase the U.S. government’s ability to support the Palestinian people.

USAID’s vision of a prosperous and peaceful world is one in which women, girls, men, and boys enjoy equal economic, social, cultural, civil, and political rights. Our programs work toward a world where women are equally empowered to secure better lives for themselves, their families, their communities, and their countries.

With women representing half of the Palestinian society in the West Bank and Gaza, USAID is committed to ensuring that female empowerment, gender equity, diversity, equity, and inclusion are incorporated in all of our activities.

Palestinian women are known for their strength, tenacity, and resilience. USAID is proud to support Palestinian women leaders working to empower other women, close gender-based gaps, and improve their communities. Below are stories of some of the amazing Palestinian women we engage with, support, and are proud to call partners.
