Biden administration to restore millions in aid to Palestinians

Source: The Hill

The State Department is reportedly planning to announce that the U.S. will restore funding to the United Nations program for Palestinian refugees, reversing a Trump-era policy.

The move by the Biden administration will provide an estimated $150 million in assistance to the program, formally called the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), Reuters reported on Wednesday.

The announcement, which could come as soon as Wednesday, is expected to accompany the restoration of an estimated $125 million to other humanitarian assistance programs for Palestinians appropriated by Congress. That funding includes $75 million to support economic development and $10 million for people-to-people programs approved by lawmakers in 2020.

An estimated $40 million frozen from 2016 and 2017 for security assistance will also be delivered.
