NEW YORK (May. 16)
The deadline date for the filing of applications to the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany by organizations, institutions and communities seeking the allocation of funds for the year 1957 is June 30, 1956, the Conference announced today. This is a change in date of the filing deadline from that of preceding years. Applications should be submitted in ten copies to the Conference and should contain a detailed description of the activities for which funds are requested.
The organizations submitting applications should also include precise budgetary data and information on other sources of income which may be available to the applicants for the projects in question. The Claims Conference, by the terms of the agreement it had concluded with the Federal Republic of Germany, is able to allocate funds only for those activities which contribute to the relief, rehabilitation and resettlement of Jewish victims of Nazi persecution, in accordance with the urgency of need.
