The initiative valued at 15$ million over 4 fiscal years (2014-2017) would be implemented through the international Monetary Fund (IMF) through a grant arrangement. While $5M of the funding is to meet the commitment to Jamaica, the other $10M is for technical assistance to other Caribbean countries that are facing economic crises.
