46. The program was ended in September 2012

and last year was................2013.

As such I can only assume that by 2013 its remaining programs were consistent with U.S. law.

I'm reminded of the death of the Cuban dissident in the car crash in Cuba :

The project that put Payá on the road to Santiago has many of the markings of the secret operations carried out under “democracy promotion” programs run by the U.S. State Department and USAID. These programs are shrouded in such secrecy that not even the Congressional oversight committees are briefed on them, so ascertaining the truth of who was directing the Carromero-Modig mission and the information campaign accusing the Cuban government of murder after the accident is practically impossible. But strong circumstantial evidence has emerged. In video testimony, Modig revealed that he met in Tbilisi with two major USAID grantees involved in such operations – the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI) – just before traveling to Cuba. It is unclear whether Payá – known for eschewing foreign financial aid – was aware that Carromero and Modig’s primary objective on the trip was to hand out money to antigovernment activists. It is conceivable that he chose not to know the details. Regardless, his death represents a significant blow to Cuban activists seeking peaceful, democratic change without heavy foreign direction.

Turned out to be death caused by dangerous driving by the driver http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-08-03/news/sns-rt-us-cuba-paya-spainbre8721ib-20120803_1_european-union-s-sakharov-prize-oswaldo-paya-jens-aron-modig

There's far more on that subject in the Latin Forum here back in the day. There's plenty on USAID contractor Alan Gross who tried to scam taking a satellite 'phone into Cuba in that forum too.
