THGC Grant

The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission offers to fund a variety of programs through its THGC Grant program.  These grant funds may be used for projects related to classroom education, workshops, recording of oral histories, and memorials or exhibits, as well as other purposes.  This grant is open to all permanent, non-profit institutions that are headquartered in the state of Texas.

Amounts up to $10,000.00 may be granted per project.  All funds may require one-to-one matches, but in-kind services may be counted toward the 50% total match.
