On the 1st, which marks two months since the Noto Peninsula Earthquake, the government will decide to make an additional spending of approximately 100 billion yen from this year's budget contingency funds to support the rebuilding of homes for disaster victims.

At the same time, we have decided to begin a series of verifications of disaster response measures.

On the morning of the 1st, the government will hold a meeting of the Noto Peninsula Earthquake Recovery and Reconstruction Support Headquarters at the Prime Minister's Office, with Prime Minister Kishida also in attendance.

This includes confirming the creation of a new subsidy system in six cities and towns in Ishikawa Prefecture that will provide up to 3 million yen to people whose homes are more than half-destructed and have difficulty rebuilding. I'm doing it.

At the subsequent Cabinet meeting, it was decided that an additional 100 billion yen would be spent from the contingency funds in this year's budget as financial resources for the implementation of this system.

This is the third time that contingency funds have been disbursed in response to the recent earthquake, and the government will continue to take flexible fiscal measures, such as by utilizing contingency funds in the new fiscal year's budget, to seamlessly support the recovery and reconstruction of disaster-stricken areas. This is our policy.

Meanwhile, the government has decided to begin verifying a series of disaster response measures, including the initial response.

We would like to examine both measures that need to be revised and measures that are considered effective, and use this to strengthen disaster preparedness.
