State Department announces $4.1 million in Cuba grants

Below is the State Department’s latest request for proposals from organizations interested in carrying out democracy work in Cuba.
This request covers $4.1 million in fiscal 2010 funds, part of the $20 million that Sen. John Kerry froze on April 1 because he had questions and concerns about the programs.
The State Department on March 31 sent Congress a notice discussing how it planned to spend the $20 million.
This new request for proposals adds some detail on ways that $4.1 million of the $20 million in funds would be allocated.
According to the request, the money would be spent on the following:

  • People with disabilities – $200,000
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, or LGBT – $300,000
  • Professional journalists – $600,000
  • Artists, writers, poets and bloggers – $600,000
  • Social inclusion, improvement of living standards – $1 million
  • Conflict resolution, promoting peace in civil society – $300,000
  • Legal associations – $700,000
  • Human rights documentation – $427,024
