THGC Holocaust Remembrance Week Grant

THGC Holocaust Remembrance Week Grant

The intent of the THGC Holocaust Remembrance Week (HRW) Grant program is to advance public knowledge and the study of the Holocaust and other genocides by partnering with Texas-based, non-profit organizations to provide local schools and communities with educational resources. The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission is charged with providing advice and assistance regarding the implementation of Holocaust and genocide education and programming, most recently with the passing of SB 1828 in 2019, which established an annual Holocaust Remembrance Week in Texas schools. This grant is designed to help schools statewide in implementing Holocaust Remembrance Week education and programming, although we encourage using the materials provided by this grant throughout the entire year.

THGC Holocaust Remembrance Week Grants require a one-to-one match. Applications may be submitted for a total of one hundred percent (100%) of the materials’ cost, for a maximum grant amount of $25,000.00. Organizations should provide 50% of the cost in matching funds. In-kind services may be counted toward the 50% match.

This grant is meant only to provide educational materials to Texas schools and communities. If you are interested in submitting an application for an original project, please look for current information on our regular grant cycles here.
