The Government of the United States has announced the third tranche of new funding today to address the immediate needs of people hardest hit by the economic crisis in Sri Lanka.  The U.S. Embassy in Colombo said this humanitarian assistance, totalling USD 5.75 million, will provide cash assistance, short-term jobs, and agriculture supplies such as seeds directly to crisis-affected people to meet their basic needs. This new grant funding through the U.S. Agency for International Development builds on last week’s announcement of USD 6 million in grants through USAID and USD 120 million in new loans through the Development Finance Corporation to meet the needs of Sri Lankans during the economic crisis.
