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 follow the money on U.S. government or government-financed projects and programs related to Cuba.
  • To shed light on what has become of the hundreds of millions of U.S. tax dollars aimed at building a civil society in Cuba and bringing about a democratic transition nearly 60 years after Fidel Castro took power.

I started the project in December 2010 and ran it for several years before taking down the website in around 2015. I relaunched the project in October 2018.

I am a journalist and former Havana bureau chief for the Dallas Morning News. See samples of my work. And here’s a really boring academic paper that no one read 🙂 and I presented it at a conference anyway in 2016.

My areas of interest include:

  • The State Department
  • The Agency for Global Media (formerly the Broadcasting Board of Governors)
  • The U.S. Agency for International Development
  • The U.S. Embassy in Havana
  • Congress
  • Federal contractors and vendors
  • Budgets
  • Contracts
  • Lawsuits
