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!
