Support and Subsidies for Creating a Greener, more Beautiful Prefecture
Local authorities, businesses, school PTAs, clubs and NPO’s across Mie Prefecture have been working to create a cleaner, more natural environment in the region’s towns and cities for all to enjoy. Mie Prefectural Government offers several schemes and subsidies to support groups who can help make our towns, coasts, rivers and roadsides greener and more beautiful.
There are four schemes currently running:
Roads, Rivers and Coastal Clean-Up Volunteer Activity Subsidy
For local groups involved in activities such as litter picking, grass cutting and planting flowers etc. in areas under prefectural management. This subsidy provides a portion of the funding for necessary tools and the standard insurance needed to protect volunteers in the case of an unforeseen accident while working on the project.
Road Clean Up Subsidy
This support scheme is available to groups of ten or more people from NPOs or citizen groups who cut the grass and clean-up along 500 meters or more of the prefectural road network at least three times a year. The scheme covers the cost of the tools needed for the above activities and cost of the standard insurance needed to protect volunteers in the case of an unforeseen accident while working on the project.
Contractual Work Schemes
The prefecture offers contracts to groups who cut more than 1,000 square meters of grass along prefectural roads, waterways and national highways administered by Mie Prefectural Government. The prefecture will pay contracted groups for this work by the area of work the grass they cut.
Flower Oasis Project
For groups that are working to plant flowers and trees in the parks and grounds of the embankment areas of prefectural managed rivers and waterways, we offer subsidies of up to 500,000 yen to cover the cost of flower seeds, saplings and fertilizer.
