Grant Description
Grants to USA, Canada, and International organizations for projects addressing the Holocaust, antisemitism, and the genocide of the Roma. Funding is intended for initiatives that protect the record of the Holocaust and that combat misinformation in education, research, and the media. Every IHRA-funded project must take an international approach. Projects should bring together target groups and project partners from at least two different countries.

The IHRA Grant Program co-funds innovative, relevant, and impactful projects with a clear international component that:

  • Safeguard the record of the Holocaust and the genocide of the Roma (Program 1) 
    • Through Program 1, the IHRA seeks to fund projects that contribute to safeguarding the record of the Holocaust and the genocide of the Roma in the following areas:
      • Initiatives which address the future of memory, especially those focusing on testimonies of survivors and witnesses which have not yet been recorded.
      • Mapping and documentation of as yet unidentified and/or unmarked sites (including killing sites) pertaining to the Holocaust and/or the genocide of the Roma.
      • Archival material that is physically at risk or where there are problems of accessibility. 
  • Counter distortion (Program 2)
    • Through Program 2, the IHRA encourages projects that aim to prevent and counter distortion in the following areas:
      • Public discourse, involving the media and particularly social media
      • Education
      • Research
      • Memorialization

Professor Yehuda Bauer Grant:

Separately to the two programs, applicants may wish to apply for the Professor Yehuda Bauer Grant. One of Professor Bauer’s key messages is that antisemitism was a major factor in the outbreak of World War II and the Holocaust which led to the murder of 6 million Jews. Therefore, continued research into this topic is vital. Accordingly, the IHRA will award funding to a project which aims to undertake new and significant research on the Holocaust and antisemitism, with no co-funding required. The project must also have an international dimension to it.

Focus on Ukraine:

Given the Russian aggression against Ukraine, the IHRA Grant Program will prioritize funding for institutions working in and around Ukraine to continue their efforts during this difficult time, and to initiate the development of concepts and capacities which would allow continued remembrance of the Holocaust during Ukraine’s recovery process and beyond. Please note that any project focusing on Ukraine must also align to either Program 1 (Safeguarding the record of the Holocaust and genocide of the Roma) or Program 2 (Countering distortion).

For information regarding allowable expenses, see: https://www.holocaustremembrance.com/sites/default/files/Grant%20Guidelines%202023-25%20V3.pdf#page=12

Projects that receive IHRA funding also have access to the wealth of IHRA expertise, tools, and guidance which have been developed since the IHRA’s establishment in 1998.
