FYSB Recruiting Grant Reviewers for 2014 Reviews

The Family and Youth Services Bureau, or FYSB, is currently recruiting individuals who can serve as reviewers and/or chairpersons for the 2014 discretionary grant reviews. Individuals selected will be responsible for evaluating grant applications and assisting FYSB in selecting the best programs for funding. 

Potential reviewers must submit a writing sample in response to FYSB’s selection criterion. Returning reviewers with a completed profile and writing sample in the Administration for Children and Families Grant Operations (ACFGO) database, must also complete a new writing sample. The writing sample question is contained within the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FYSBWritingSample.

FYSB takes into consideration the following for reviewer selection: 

  • Previous grant reviewer selection does not guarantee future reviewer participation.
  • Reviewer selection is at the discretion of FYSB program staff and is based on the applicant's knowledge and experience in the runaway and homeless youth field.
  • Reviewers who have submitted applications for fiscal year 2014 FYSB funding, or have a conflict of interest (i.e., personal or financial interest in an applicant organization), including those who are FYSB contractors/sub-contractors, are not eligible.

Questions should be directed to the Reviewer Information toll free line at (866) 796-1613 or send an email to: Fysbreviewer@luxcg.com.
