2.Cash Grant for the affected people of each disasters.

Just after each disaster, Cash Distribution Committee would be set up in the affected prefecture and receive cash grants.It depends on the number of casualties and affected people of the disaster if the Cash Distribution Committee is set up or not, therefore, the JRCS will post each cash grant information for each disaster on Emergency Relief Page.

Cash Grant system: all funds received by the JRCS will be transferred to "Cash Distribution Committee" of each affected prefecture who decides criteria for the distribution. Actual cash distribution will be carried out by afflicted municipalities to each beneficiary.

Cash Grant system

Please kindly note that;

The JRCS will

  • close the fundraising on the date set by each Cash Distribution Committee.
  • inform the date of transfer and total amount of contribution through the JRCS Website, each time the JRCS makes a transfer to the "Cash Distribution Committee". This shall be the formality of sharing information and reporting the distribution of the received fund, thus additional project and audit report shall not be issued.
  • not make any contact with the donors for those cash grants because they are just deposits.
  • not allow you to use the JRCS logo for those cash grants because of the same reason above.
