1. Introduction

Since 1989, the Government of Japan has been offering a financial assistance scheme called “the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Projects (GGP)” for development projects designed to meet the diverse basic human needs of the people in developing countries. The GGP has acquired an excellent reputation worldwide for providing timely support to the local communities at the grass-roots level. In India, the GGP scheme has been supporting projects to be implemented by nonprofit organizations such as nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), educational and medical institutions eligible to receive foreign funds under the law of the Government of India.

2. Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for the grant, the applicant must meet all the following criteria:

1) The applicant must be one of the following organizations:

a. International, National or Local NGO

b. Medical Institution

c. Educational Institution

d. Community-Based Organization (CBO)

2) Registered organization under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 1976

3) Registered organization under the relevant registration acts including national and state acts such as:

c. Religious Endowments Act, 1863

e. Section 25 of the Indian Companies Act, 1956

4) Minimum 2 years of direct/related experience in the proposed field of activity

5) Not black-listed or court-listed by the state/central government. The applicant must not have any pending case with a court.

 

3. Priority Areas of the GGP

 

The following are the priority areas of the GGP:

 

1) Basic Human Needs and Human Security

 

a.Basic Health Care

 

b.Primary Education and Adult Illiteracy

 

c.Poverty Alleviation

 

d.Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation

 

e.Women’s Empowerment

 

f. Child Welfare including Support for Street Children and Elimination of Child Labour

 

g.Support for Persons with Disabilities

 

h.Preservation of Environment

 

2) Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project in collaboration with Japanese or Japanese-affiliated companies

 

If the project does not fall under the above mentioned areas, it is advisable to contact the corresponding GGP office (Please refer the list of corresponding office) before submission of the application.

Note:

 

-The following areas cannot be supported by the GGP:

 

  • A project which is not aiming at the socio-economic development of India.
  • A project which does not have clear and direct benefit at grassroots level (e.g. capacity building of NGO staff or other NGO, research or higher education, commercial activities of particular organization or individual, etc.)
  • A project which contains political, religious or military purpose
  • A project related to the items which may harm people’s health (e.g. alcohol, tobacco, etc.)
  • A project focusing on art/cross-cultural activities. (Those who are interested in carrying out projects under the aforementioned area may contact the Cultural Section in the Embassy/Consulate-General/Consulate of Japan for details about another scheme called “Grant Assistance for Cultural Grassroots Projects” which may consider supporting the mentioned area

-In case the GGP funded project generates profit, the profit should be utilized either to meet the recurring cost of the GGP funded project or for the benefit of the target group.

 

-In case of projects designed for emergency relief work, please note that the sanction of such projects will depend on the merit of the plan. This is because the procedure of GGP requires time and sanction for projects may not be immediate

4. Funding

The GGP is one-time disbursement by the end of the fiscal year when its Grant Contract is signed. The maximum amount per project is 10 million Japanese Yen (fixed) and the grant is disbursed in US Dollars. We strongly recommend that organizations should make project budget based on their actual needs within this maximum amount.
