The Conference On Jewish Material Claims Against Germany
Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit institutions to provide social services and shelter programs for elderly Holocaust survivors. Priorities include food programs, case management, homecare and housekeeping services, health and medical services, transportation, emergency assistance, socialization, and Israel-based healthcare institutions.
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.).
In addition to the internal staff review, many projects are also assessed by outside professionals. Generally, capital investment projects in Israel are reviewed by an Israeli government-led committee known as the Inter-Institutional Committee. This Committee, which the Claims Conference was instrumental in creating, consists of representatives of the Ministries of Health, Welfare, and Finance; Eshel (Association for Planning and Development of Services for the Aged in Israel); Bituach Leumi (National Social Insurance System); the Claims Conference; and a representative of the Centre of Organizations of Holocaust Survivors in Israel.
The Committee makes recommendations concerning projects based on professional standards and the need for the project in the area, and ensures the financial commitment of government and public funds, thus enabling the Claims Conference to leverage its resources.
