The US Embassy has been offering grants for several years under their Central American Regional Security initiative economic support fund. The first several years of the grant focused on at-risk youths; however, last year it shifted to support initiatives that promote good governance. In this regard, this year the US Embassy will be disbursing as much as one point two million dollars which will be divided among organizations that can come up with a plan to promote good governance. Love News spoke with Beverly Mather-Marcus, Political and Economic Affairs Chief at the US Embassy in Belize about the initiative.
