Japan Special Fund Poverty Reduction Program (JPO)

The Japan Special Fund Poverty Reduction Program (JPO), established in 2001 with US$30 million and replenished with US$22.5 million in 2011, provides non-reimbursable financial resources for Technical Cooperation (TC) operations and supports poverty alleviation activities impacting low-income and vulnerable populations.

The IDB-JPO has a proven track record in implementing community-based development projects in a number of sectors, in numerous countries, and with many local community development organizations. Since 2001, the IDB-JPO has funded over 145 projects for approximately US$50 million.

The Call for Proposals for Civil Society Organizations is specifically related to the IDB-JPO’s Community Based Program. The goal of the CFP is to select and finance innovative, community-based grassroots development projects that have a direct impact on low-income communities and vulnerable groups. As a rule, the JPO requires Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) as executing agencies because of their expertise and capacity to carry out community-based projects.
