    Partitive or perhaps a mistake?

    I'm working with an article about the help granted by US government to finantial institutions recently:
    "Всего за время кризиса администрация США выделила AIG и другим финансовым организациям субсидий на сумму в 700 миллиардов долларов".
    My doubt is in субсидий, gen. pl. and so a partitive of the kind of "Дай мне хлеба". But I'm not sure that here should be used this genitive and perhaps it may be a mistake instead of the accusative: субсидии.
    What do you think about it? Perhaps it is just a matter of shades? Thanks.

    Either variant is acceptable.
    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.
