In order to encourage sustained growth and innovation of Japan America Societies (JAS) in the United States, the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP) launched the JAS Initiative in 2008 to support networking and capacity building of Japan America Societies. Recognizing the value of the Japan America Societies in fostering mutual understanding between the U.S. and Japan on a grassroots level, CGP aims to support the Japan America Societies through its continued work with the JAS Initiative. In order to further strengthen Japan America Societies in the NAJAS network and to enhance their effectiveness in carrying out their mission, the JAS Initiative will support strategic planning and/or capacity building projects that demonstrate feasibility and organizational sustainability.

This program was conducted from 2008 to 2017.
