FRIDA is a program by LACNIC that supports Latin American and Caribbean initiatives that contribute to the consolidation of a global, open, stable and secure Internet.
FRIDA was created in 2004 with the support of two Canadian government entities: the Institute for Connectivity in the Americas (ICA) and the International Development Research Center (IDRC). Since its creation, this program has received contributions from LACNIC, the IDRC, the Internet Society and the Swedish Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
The projects that receive funding are selected through an annual, open and public call for projects and under the guidance of a selection committee comprised of regional experts.
