Japan established the Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction (original JFPR) in May 2000 to provide grants for projects supporting poverty reduction and related social development activities that can add value to projects financed by ADB.

It was enhanced in September 2021 and its name changed to Japan Fund for Prosperous and Resilient Asia and the Pacific, with 4 new priority areas in addition to poverty reduction: universal health coverage, climate change and disaster risk management, quality infrastructure investment, and public finance management.
