USAID ramps up

Got an idea for a Cuba project with a budget between $100,000 and $5 million?

The U.S. Agency for International Development has $20 million to spend and is soliciting proposals, expecting to award about 20 grants to spend that money. The range of program activities is described here, and grants can be made to nonprofits or for-profit companies. The common thread is that they are to build civil society “and thereby hasten a peaceful transition to democracy.”

This request for proposals is the result of Congress appropriating $45 million for Cuba democracy programs in fiscal 2008.

perhaps this is part of an effort to undo all the damage that left-wing foundations (who fund you) do to obscure the goal of freedom for the Cuban people....

USAID is propoganda arm of the US government. Maby 80 percent of what it does is "good" but nevertheless its propoganda and the manifest of "soft power".

A waste of taxpayer money.

Freedom to Cuba! (but get out USA)
