FYSB Recruiting Grant Reviewers for 2013 Reviews
The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) is currently recruiting individuals who can serve as reviewers and/or chairpersons for the 2013 discretionary grant reviews. Individuals selected will have the responsibility of evaluating grant applications and assisting FYSB in selection of the best programs for funding.
Reviewer recruitment efforts for 2013 competitions now include a mandatory writing sample. All potential reviewers must submit a writing sample in response to FYSB’s selection criterion. If you are a returning reviewer and have a completed profile and writing sample in the Administration for Children and Families Grant Operations (ACFGO) database, you are still required to complete a new writing sample. The writing sample question is contained within the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FYSBWritingSample.
Previously registered reviewers are required to update their existing profile by visiting: www.acfgo.com.
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 your knowledge and experience in the runaway and homeless youth field.
- We will not utilize reviewers who have submitted applications for the current funding cycle for FYSB (FY 2013) or have a conflict of interest (i.e. personal or financial interest in an applicant organization), including those who are FYSB contractors/sub-contractors.
A review of new and updated profiles along with writing samples will be conducted weekly and FYSB will begin making reviewer selections June 17, 2013.
Questions should be directed to the Reviewer Information toll free line at (866) 796-1613 or send an email to: Fysbreviewer@luxcg.com.
