According to the US State Department’s statement, the announced assistance includes $209 million by the United States Agency for International Development, and $82 million by the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration.

In a press release, The United States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said the United States has provided nearly $806 million in humanitarian aid to Yemen since the beginning of the fiscal year 2021.
