THGC Grants Awarded to Holocaust Museums
The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission offers grant funds for organizations and projects that assist the THGC’s mission to support Holocaust and genocide courses of study and awareness programs. In 2013, the first of these grant awards were announced by the commission, funding two programs.
Holocaust Museum Houston was granted funds that will help the institution in the digitizing of their Curriculum Trunk program. This traveling trunk provides Holocaust materials and resources for classrooms all around the state of Texas.
The THGC also granted funds to El Paso Holocaust Museum to assist staff in developing an El Paso Holocaust Survivors webpage. The page will host video testimonies of the survivors.
The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission offers grants annually. Visit the THGC Grant page for more information about the program.
