ACF awards billions of dollars in grant opportunities on an annual basis. These awards are designed to help us carry out our mission, for which we rely upon the work of States, Tribes, and organizations at the local level. In determining which of these projects will be used to execute the ACF mission, we partner with individuals across the nation to serve as objective grant reviewers. Grant reviewers are critical to our grant award process.
As a part of the ACF Accessibility Initiative, key ACF programs are recruiting and engaging new reviewers in the process. The grant review process is mutually beneficial for the Federal government and the reviewers. The Federal government and tax payers benefit from field expertise and knowledge of the reviewers, ensuring that our projects address relevant and emerging issues in the community. At the same time, reviewers obtain knowledge about the Federal grant award process and grant application requirements, which can be taken back to the community and applied when developing proposals.
The purpose of this note is to invite you to register in one of ACF's grant reviewer databases. Below are brief descriptions of some of ACF's key program offices, and links to their respective sites where you can register to become a reviewer. If you have expertise and knowledge in the applicable areas (or know of someone else that does), please follow the link (and/or forward this note) and take the first step in partnering with ACF in its grants review process. If you have already registered with us, thank you for your willingness to partner with us!
Register to become a reviewer for ACF Programs:
Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF): administers the major Federal programs that support social services designed to promote the positive growth and development of children and youth and their families; protective services and shelter for children and youth in at-risk situations; and adoption for children with special needs. These programs provide financial assistance to States, community-based organizations, and academic institutions to provide services, carry out research and demonstration activities and undertake training, technical assistance, and information dissemination.
Administration for Native Americans (ANA): promotes the goal of self-sufficiency and cultural preservation for Native Americans by providing social and economic development opportunities through financial assistance, training, and technical assistance to eligible Tribes and Native American communities, including American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Native Pacific Islanders organizations. ANA provides funding for community-based projects that are designed to improve the lives of Native children and families and reduce long-term dependency on public assistance.
Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD): implements the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000, known as the DD Act, and the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002.
Office of Community Services (OCS): works in partnership with States, communities, and other agencies to provide a range of human and economic development services and activities, which ameliorate the causes and characteristics of poverty and otherwise assist persons in need. The aim of these services and activities is to increase the capacity of individuals and families to become self-sufficient, to revitalize communities, and to build the stability and capacity of children, youth, and families so that they become able to create their own opportunities.
Office of Family Assistance, Child Care Bureau (CCB): supports low-income working families through child care financial assistance and promotes children's learning by improving the quality of early care and education and after school programs.
Office of Head Start (OHS): advises the Assistant Secretary for Children and Families on issues regarding the Head Start program (including Early Head Start). The Head Start program provides grants to local public and private non-profit and for-profit agencies to provide comprehensive child development services to economically disadvantaged children and families, with a special focus on helping preschoolers develop the early reading and math skills they need to be successful in school.
