The purpose of the ESF-RWP Grants Program is to provide support to help states with the highest coronavirus burden create or expand short-term education and training opportunities and/or career pathways programs that help citizens return to work, become entrepreneurs, or expand their small businesses; or to enable states to create or expand small business incubators that offer education and training, mentorship, as well as shared facilities and resources that will help small businesses recover and grow and new entrepreneurs thrive.
In support of this competition, we now seek individuals who can participate in review panels that will help us to select grant award winners, to provide written analysis and scoring of submitted grant applications, and to provide constructive written feedback to applicants.
Please note that submitting your resume and/or registering in G5 does not guarantee that you will be selected as a reviewer.
In addition to sharing highlights of your career history and your current experience working in the relevant areas above, please share the following (if applicable):
All reviews will be submitted in the Department’s online G5 system.
Peer reviewers will be provided an honorarium of $1,000 upon successful completion of peer review duties.
Reviewers who are selected to participate will be contacted by the OCTAE team or its contractor and asked for additional contact information, availability, and potential conflicts of interest. Those not selected may be referred to be a peer reviewer for a future competition.
You are not eligible to be a reviewer if you will be applying to the competition or are employed by an applicant, if you will be involved in the preparation of a grant application, or if you would stand to benefit from an application that were to receive funding in this new competition. You may be eligible, however, if you are a current or past OCTAE grantee and are not submitting a new application under the competition.
