USAID funding the Castro regime?

Four Cuban American lawmakers are questioning suspicious language in the latest RFA (Request for Applications) from the USAID in regards to promoting democracy in Cuba. The RFA states that since Civil Society Organizations are illegal in Cuba, any funding from USAID must be used with Civil Society Groups, which are part of and run by the Cuban regime.

If this is the case, it seems that the USAID believes that the best way to promote democracy in Cuba is to provide funding and support for the same regime that ensures there is no democracy in Cuba.
