The U.S. Agency for International Development in September awarded at least six grants totaling $3,828,882 to boost human rights, promote democratic values and assist political prisoners and their families in Cuba. Recipients include:
- Grupo de Apoyo a la Democracia, $625,000
- Bacardi Family Foundation, $600,000
- The Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba, $544,846
- Outreach Aid to the Americas, Inc., $500,001
- Digital News Association, Inc., $410,710
- International Republican Institute, $406,895
- Institute on Race, Equality and Human Rights, $325,000
- Asociación Observatorio Cubano de Derechos Humanos, $250,000
- Liberatus, $166,430
The grants were awarded from Sept. 11 to Sept. 29. I don’t think this is a definitive list, but these are the grants I found after a quick search of data at usaspending.gov. I will post more information as I find it.
Records show that Grupo de Apoyo planned to carry out “all or mostly all” of its work in Cuba.
