Question: What is the status of the funding Congresswoman Granger approved for the Palestinian Authority?

Answer: We are working with Congress to ensure U.S. support for the Palestinians, including $495.7 million in FY 2012 assistance that was notified in April 2012 and $200 million in FY 2013 direct budget support that was notified last week. Our view remains that our assistance to the Palestinian people is an essential part of the U.S. commitment to a negotiated two-state solution for Palestinians and Israelis, promoting a comprehensive peace in the Middle East. It is in the interest not only of the Palestinians, but of Israel and the United States as well, to ensure these efforts continue as they help to build a more democratic, stable and secure region.
