Michael Ranneberger, Director of Cuban Affairs. Department of State (202-647-9272). In
many insta!"lces the applic~nt mayl need to visit Cuba in order to develop a project proposal.

An important: &ctor iri licensin~ detcrminiition~ is the degree of ;issurance that the USti
can have thal llu! applicant has th~ wherewithal to ensure that the rroposed activity will be
c~rried out as described 1n the license application arid consi.stent with embariO t'C~ulatio11~. .

to effet:tively c:arry out the activity in Cuba as proposed. Clearly some activities would
demand gri:ater experience than others. The applicant's pJans for moniroring tht ~crivily ;tnd
ensuring accollntability will also be an in,poru,,t con!>ideration in the review process.

Cuban Counterpart Orjanjzations
Wheth~r a ()roposeu activity is considered co promote the purposes of the Support for
lhe Cuban People regulation will depend in lar2e part upon the designated Cuban cou,U~fJ>aftS
and/or beneficiaries. R~cognized Cuban human riehr.~ (lrganizations are specifically mentioned
in the regul:itiori as an eligible category. For thesB org.inizations and other truly independent
NGCk, ~uch as c.hurches ond church.affiliated organizations and iml~pendent professional
organiutions such as the indcpt:m!~ni economim. a fairly hroad range of assisunce will be
considtr1:d !or licen~ing. There is no ambiguity m che role th..t these org1nizacions have in
stre.ngthening civil society in Cuba., and the U.S. Ccr11ernment particularly encourages support
co them . Applicant\ $hould understand ihal many independent organi~tions in Cuba are not
officially recognized by the Cubari Government.
On the other hand, there art: a httxe number of ora,ani:n11ions in Cuba that are classified
by the govcrnmcm of CV·,A as NGOs. but which to a greater or lesser degree arc affiliated
with and/M controlled by the government. Some have been established t,y the governmMr 10
pursue the political aims of the goven1rn,ni or to anratt exro>:i-nal assistan,;c. Within th1s broad
array. ciffcrem org~1li1aTinns evidence varying dewees of inde>piu,dence of thought and action.
With tht aim of promoting a diverse civil society in Cuba. the USG will consider
a-policiltions for assis~ncc that may involvt!- the participation of 2overnment-affiliated NGOs
where ther1o is evidence that rhe particular organization demonstrates a degree of independence.
