Recovery and Reconstruction Support Program Database released
- Launch of user-oriented program search service -
The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) launched the Recovery and Reconstruction Support Program Database on January 17, 2012 in cooperation with the Reconstruction Headquarters in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake and other ministries. This is a one-stop service site where users can search through a wide variety of support programs operated by the central and local governments. It allows counseling staff and experts at government agencies to find and provide the latest information on public support programs for people affected by the disaster much faster and more accurately than before.
- The central and local governments have already established more than 400 programs to support post-disaster recovery and reconstruction, and the number is expected to grow further.
- The database provides a one-stop service that allows counseling staff and experts at government agencies to easily search through a wide range of public support programs available and find ones most suited to each resident or business in need of assistance.
- Other useful functions will be added to the database (scheduled for late February), including one that sends the latest information to government agency counseling staff and experts and one that uses a private search site to provide affected people with a combination of assistance programs offered by companies and those offered by the central and local governments.
* METI is developing this service in cooperation with the Reconstruction Headquarters in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake, the IT Policy Office of the Cabinet Secretariat, the Disaster Management Team of the Cabinet Office, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
