Japan violated the Open Door principle with its Twenty-one Demands to China in 1915
After Russia invaded the Japanese-held Chinese region of Manchuria in 1902, Japan stepped in to retake the territory. A year later, Japan and Great Britain signed a naval alliance.
Several years after the Russo-Japanese War, Japan and the United States were at odds in the League of Nations. Woodrow Wilson needed assistance with the growing conflict in Europe. He was wary of Japanese intentions in the Pacific.
In the year 1915, a group of Japanese diplomats in China, known as Group Five, presented a list of demands to China. They included five groups of secret demands, referred to as Twenty-one Demands.
Although the list contained no specific threats, Japan threatened that if the Twenty-one Demands were leaked, Japan would take drastic action against China. The ultimatum was delivered to Beijing in early May.
As a result, the Sino-Japanese treaty was signed on May 25, 1915. The agreement was aimed at preserving Japanese control over the key Chinese transportation centers and mining centers. However, it soured relations with the United States.
NYAIL’s Transition Center Project and Peer Support Program
NYAIL’s Open Doors Peer Support Program is a one-on-one support program for people transitioning from an institutional setting to a community setting. The program enables people with ICF/IIDs to return to the fold. As part of the Money Follows the Person Nursing Home Transition initiative, the program provides residents with objective information to guide them through their journey to community living.
NYAIL’s Open Doors Peer Support program features a statewide network of 24 Transition Centers. These centers are staffed by Registered Nurses, Social Workers, and Transition Specialists. During a typical day, one or more of these specialists visits a nursing home or HCBS waiver site to provide a “peer-like” support experience. The team works with each facility to help determine a person’s needs. They work with managed care plans and HCBS waivers to ensure access to needed benefits and services.
One of the largest barriers to independence for people with disabilities in this area is the transportation barrier. The Open Doors Transition Center has a number of initiatives to address this barrier.
HPD’s Open Door program funds
The construction of cooperative and condominium buildings affordable for moderate to low-income households
New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) is one of the nation’s largest municipal housing agencies. Its Open Door program funds the construction of cooperative and condominium buildings affordable for moderate to low-income households. HPD’s mission is to preserve and promote quality housing and diverse neighborhoods while promoting economic prosperity, educational opportunity, and community engagement.
The program has helped create more than 11,322 new homes for New Yorkers. Nearly 2,800 of those units were created for formerly homeless New Yorkers.
In addition to creating thousands of new affordable homes, HPD has also preserved thousands of other existing properties. This work is vital to maintaining housing affordability and to keeping families in their homes.
The Open Door program helps provide low-interest loans to developers of condominium and cooperative buildings for affordable homeownership opportunities. Ownership of a home has been shown to benefit health outcomes, improve civic engagement, and expand economic pathways.
Under the program, a developer must set aside at least 40 percent of units for households earning no more than 120 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI). A maximum of 30 percent of the units must be reserved for seniors and homeless individuals.
