The CGP grant program provides funding for projects in the following two categories:
Intellectual Exchange: Policy-Oriented Projects:
CGP supports a wide range of policy-oriented projects jointly conducted by U.S. and Japanese institutions including universities, think tanks, and non-profit organizations. These policy-oriented projects explore contemporary issues of global concern and issues common to the U.S. and Japan, which involve cooperation among academics, practitioners, civil servants, and civil society organizations. Successful projects have domestic and international policy impact.

Grassroots Program: Education and Network-Strengthening:
CGP supports projects aimed to promote the understanding of Japan at the local level and to foster networks and capacity building to support U.S.-Japan exchange and outreach.

The grant amount will be decided based upon scale and necessity for each project. CGP grant funds can be applied to the following project costs directly related to the proposed project:
Rent and other administrative costs are not to be included as direct costs; CGP considers these costs to be included within the category of indirect costs. CGP will support indirect costs totaling no more than ten percent (10%) of the actual direct costs CGP supports.
