Ambassador Mohamed Bin Abdulla al Rumaihi, together with former US president Bill Clinton, announced that money from the Qatar Haiti Fund will go toward a range of projects seeking to help Haiti rebuild from the massive earthquake in 2010.
The projects range from a $2m grant that goes toward a mobile health clinic set up by Partners in Health of Boston, Massachusetts, to a $5.5m grant for the University of Notre Dame and the Xavier University of Louisiana.
One million of that will be earmarked for scholarships for students who would not be able to attend school otherwise.
"I hope it will set an example for other donors who have committed funds but have not been specific yet about when they will deliver," Mr Clinton said about Qatar.
"The Qataris have kept their word and done it in an intelligent, forward-looking way."
A separate grant for $700,000 from the Qatar Haiti Fund will go toward the Haitian Government and the city of New Orleans. The idea is to impart lessons from Hurricane Katrina to Haiti's prime minister's office.
The Qatar Haiti Fund and the US Agency for International Development also signed a memorandum of understanding to build about 150 to 200 permanent homes for people displaced by the earthquake on a piece of land donated by the Haitian Government.
