Tokyo Metropolitan Government subsidizes NPO projects to help foreign residents

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government will be funding projects that help out foreign residents:

As of January, about 390,321 foreign nationals were registered as residents of the capital, up about 20,000 from a year earlier, accounting for more than 3 percent of the population.

More than 200 registered groups in Tokyo are providing support for non-Japanese citizens in fields including education, medicine and disaster measures. But most of the NPOs are volunteer-based and are short of financial resources.

Under the program to offer subsidies of up to ¥3 million per group, the metropolitan government hopes financially struggling NPOs will be able to offer better projects in such areas as medical care, Japanese language teaching and disaster measures, and give comprehensive support to non-Japanese citizens across Tokyo.
