The mandate of the Community Development Committee (CDC) is to respond to the needs of the Japanese Canadian community. More specifically, the CDC provides direction to the National Executive Board (NEB) regarding needs evidenced by groups such as seniors, youth, and Ijusha. The CDC is also responsible for providing the NEB with a link to the Cultural Centers and arts groups.
Working towards its purpose of responding to community needs, the CDC has provided another opportunity to obtain funding towards one project to be initiated during the 2015-16 fiscal year. This year there are no requirements that need to be met, other than it should address a need in your community. Please keep in mind that favourable consideration will be given to member organizations that outline the shortfall their community has and how this proposed project will address it. Only one project will be approved by the NAJC for each Full and Supporting Member Organization and that the proposal must be signed by the President/Chair of the organization making the application.
