Cuba Money Project is a journalism initiative aimed at reporting stories about U.S. government programs and projects related to Cuba. Among the project’s goals:
- To shed light on U.S. efforts to bring about a democratic transition 60 years after Fidel Castro took power.
- To learn the fate of hundreds of millions of U.S. tax dollars spent on Cuba programs. See academic paper I wrote on the subject in 2016).
I started the project in December 2010 and ran it for several years at cubamoneyproject.org before taking down the website in around 2015.
I relaunched the project in October 2018 and have redirected the old URL to the new site.
I am a journalist and former Havana bureau chief for the Dallas Morning News. See portfolio.
My areas of interest include the:
- State Department
- Agency for Global Media (formerly the Broadcasting Board of Governors)
- Agency for International Development
- U.S. Embassy in Havana
- U.S. Naval Station at Guantánamo Bay
- Federal contracts, budgets, lawsuits, interesting documents and whistleblower cases, among other things.
If you have a tip, story idea, correction or clarification, please get in touch. Thanks!
