The Government of Japan invites to apply for the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) in fiscal year 2021 (April 2021 – March 2022).

Reflecting the Japanese Government’s strong commitment to uphold the concept of “Human Security”, GGP program intends to contribute to improvements in various fields including education, health, infrastructure, as well as other sectors.

The overall goal of GGP is to enhance the wellbeing of people at the grassroots level, based on the concept of human security.

Although local governments including municipalities are eligible for applying, the value-added tax (VAT) is not exempted under the current legislation. In case they would like to apply, we recommend to find a partner NGO which will be the applicant of the GGP so that the VAT will be exempted (Otherwise, the local governments or municipalities will be requested to cover the additional 20% of the GGP total budget by their own expenses as the VAT).

The priority is given to the projects which are in line with Japanese Assistance Policy for the Republic of Armenia.
