The Japanese city govt sent out letters the other day for people on low incomes. I'm trying to translate this but I'm not sure what it really means on the application.
I got a copy machine with a scanner on it, but I don't know how to use it. This application they sent out to all people in town with little or no income and if you fill out the application, I think it says they pay 30000 yen one time payment. Maybe members here have received the same one from their city and can chime in. I got a Canon MG6530 printer but the instructions are in Japanese. There's probably got to be an American model similar with English manual. I tried to look for one but was not successful at all.申請? Application

You're not going to be able to translate it. Just post a clear photo of it and we'll give you the gist of it.
OK, I'm going to try to scan it and translate the stuff that comes up on the little printer screen.
I'll try to have it done in a few hours from now
Thanks ToritoribeHere's the page about the Temporary Welfare Benefits (臨時福祉給付金) in the site of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (厚生労働省).

I think this is the English manual you need for your printer.
Canon : Manuals : PIXUS MG6530 : Select Device
There's a Japanese manual online but I didn't try to compare them. The Japanese quick start guide didn't immediately tell me how to scan that I could see, but I'm sure the full manual discusses it.
What city are you in? There must be some volunteers that can help you.
First page entry points are: application date (heisei year, month, day), name (furigana, then regular), male (already filled out), birth date (covered), phone, current address (covered), the new address.
Second and third pages aren't clear enough for me.
Here's an English explanation. It's for recipients in Fukuoka City, so the document is not the same as yours, but it would be helpful to understand what you should do.
You need to attach a copy of your driver's license. If you have a bank account and choose B, a copy of your bank book is also necessary. When you choose C, you need to circle the place you want to receive the cash at; the City Hole or North General Branch Office (Kusunoki Office).
