Between 1948 and 2013 The U.S. provided Egypt with USD 73.2 billion in bilateral foreign aid, including USD 1.3 billion a year in military aid from 1987 to the present.  Egypt receives the bulk of foreign aid funds from three primary accounts: Foreign Military Financing (FMF), Economic Support Funds (ESF) and International Military Education and Training (IMET).  The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is the primary provider of U.S. bilateral foreign assistance, followed by the U.S Department of Agriculture and Department of Defense.

Egypt also receives, though not consistently, relatively small sums from the Nonproliferation, Antiterrorism, Demining, and Related Programs (NADR) account and the International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement (INCLE) account. NADR funds support counter-terrorism training through the Antiterrorism Assistance Program. INCLE funds support police training and respect for human rights in law enforcement.
