Official narrative

The International Broadcasting Act of 1994 is explicit about the mission of RFA: "the continuation of existing U.S. international broadcasting, and the creation of a new broadcasting service to people of the People's Republic of China and other countries of Asia, which lack adequate sources of free information and ideas, would enhance the promotion of information and ideas, while advancing the goals of U.S. foreign policy."

Activities

Yasha Levine states that Radio Free Asia's Open Technology Fund funded Tor in "2014 in excess of $1 million", as well as backing other such software including CryptoCat and Open Whisper Systems.[1]
