DC MOAA’s FY17 African Community Grant – Call for Reviewers
The Mayor’s Office on African Affairs (MOAA) is seeking qualified individuals to serve as reviewers for its FY17 African Community Grant. Reviewers help MOAA select the best proposals from a competitive pool of applicants and are chosen based on their knowledge, education, and experience. The review process is designed to ensure that each grant is awarded on the basis of evaluation selection criteria. Reviewers are therefore essential to the grant process as they evaluate and score applications and provide objective recommendations for potential recipients. The grant review panel will reflect a broad diversity of ethnicity, gender, age, and experience.
All residents of the District of Columbia metropolitan area are encouraged to apply to serve as reviewers. All reviewers must be actively involved with the DC African community.
Expertise in the following areas is strongly suggested and should be noted when applying: ·
• Relevant education, training, and/or experience in the subject areas of the grant program;
• Knowledge of and/or experience with program planning, implementation, and evaluation processes.
• Strong writing skills;
MOAA offers funding in the following priority areas:
• Jobs and Workforce Development
• Linkage to Health, Wellness, and Human Services
• Youth Engagement and Education
• Promotion of Arts, Culture and the Humanities
Reviewers will have up to two weeks to review 5-6 proposals. All reviews need to be typed and submitted online. Reviewers do NOT receive compensation and are appointed for FY17 with the possibility of reapplying for future review opportunities at MOAA.
