Question: Is the U.S. providing assistance to Mexico in wake of the flooding that has occurred? If so, what assistance are we providing?
Answer: The United States has provided $100,000 in disaster assistance to support the local purchase and delivery of emergency relief supplies for disaster-affected populations in Mexico. In addition, a five-person USAID assessment team is currently on the ground to monitor humanitarian conditions and coordinate the U.S. Government (USG) response. The U.S. and Mexican sections of the International Boundary and Water Commission have been and will continue to coordinate flood control measures in the Rio Grande river basin.
