Ideal Presenters will have:
Current or history of service within RHY programs
Experience in workshop and conference presentations
Ability to present interactive, informative and innovative information
Willingness to work with RHYTTAC to ensure the best experience for participants

Although there is no financial reimbursement for presenter involvement, we believe that the opportunity to present in front of your colleagues and Federal officers at a national conference is well worth the investment.

2013 Discretionary Grant Reviews

On behalf of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), we are 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.

Please note the following FYSB Program considerations 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 you may send an email to: [email protected].

Thank you for your support and dedication.
