Memorandum for the Secretary of State
Pursuant to section 2(c)(1) of the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act of 1962, as amended, 22 U.S.C. 2601(c)(1), I hereby determine that it is important to the national interest that $10,000,000 be made available from the U.S. Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund (Emergency Fund) to meet the unexpected and urgent needs of refugees and other persons displaced by the crisis in the Middle East.
This drawdown provides $10,000,000 for the urgent needs of those displaced by the crisis in the Middle East. These funds will be contributed on a multilateral or bilateral basis as appropriate to international organizations, private voluntary organizations, and other governmental and non-governmental agencies engaged in the relief efforts and up to $100,000 will be used only to cover some of the related administrative expenses necessary to implement and monitor the use of this assistance.
You are directed to inform the appropriate committees of the Congress of this determination and the obligation of funds under this authority, and to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.
