Grants to USA, Canada, and International organizations and institutions to provide social services to elderly Holocaust survivors. Funding is intended for a range of services, including food programs, case management, homecare and housekeeping services, health and medical services, transportation, emergency assistance, and socialization programs.

For additional information about Services Funded by Claims Conference Grants, see:

Established in 1951, the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany negotiates for compensation and restitution for Jewish victims of Nazi persecution, administers compensation funds, recovers heirless Jewish property, and allocates funds to organizations which provide social welfare services to Jewish Nazi victims and preserves the memory of the Shoah through Holocaust research, education and documentation initiatives.

In evaluating social service applications, the staff looks at several items such as:

  • The type and nature of the needs of the vulnerable Jewish Nazi victims in each country;
  • The number of Jewish Nazi victims currently served by the organization;
  • Unmet homecare needs of Jewish Nazi victims served by the organization or on a wait list for service;
  • The level of government services and social safety nets;
  • The availability of other resources (e.g., restitution, compensation, philanthropic and governmental);
  • Types of services being provided;
  • Track record of the organization if previous grants have been awarded;
  • Reasonableness of the budget and the cost of providing services;
  • Professional standards of organization (e.g., service delivery, budgets, results of audits, etc.).
