IHRA's Grant Strategy aims to strengthen the political commitment of governments in order to ensure future generations will understand the causes of the Holocaust and reflect upon its consequences.
The objectives of IHRA's Funding Policy are to:
The Grant Strategy consists of two programmes:
1) Develop strategies for Holocaust Memorial Days in a way that injects substance, real meaning and educational value into these events.
2) Raise awareness and promote research into the causes of the Holocaust, its driving forces and mechanism, with a view to preventing genocide, ethnic cleansing, racism, antisemitism, and xenophobia.
The IHRA calls for grant applications from organizations and institutions in the field of Holocaust education, remembrance, and research that wish to carry out projects which fit within the remit of one of these two programmes. The IHRA encourages grant applications that cut across the IHRA's mandate fields with activities combining education, remembrance, and research. Applications with the following special focuses are encouraged: genocide of the Roma, new research fields, projects that further support IHRA's Multi-Year Work Plan, Holocaust denial, new technologies and social media, and public campaigns and installations.
Many common questions are answered in the FAQs section.
