EPA’s Office of Environmental Education (OEE) released its FY 2021 Request for Applications for environmental education projects. Given the volume of applications we received, OEE is looking for volunteers who are knowledgeable in environmental education at the community, state and regional
levels to assist us in evaluating this year’s applications.
In order to be a grant reviewer, you must not have any conflicts of interest with competing applicants, or otherwise, under the competition. You will be asked to sign a conflict of interest and waiver of compensation document. EPA will not pay grant reviewers. If you are selected to be a reviewer, you will get the chance to review upcoming and exciting projects from across the country at the grassroots level and provide invaluable assistance to the program.
What will I do?
You will be assigned 3-5 grant applications to review based on the criteria in the solicitation. You will read them, score them based on the criteria in the solicitation, and then provide your scoring to the Regional EPA contact. EPA will provide guidance and instruction about the evaluation process.
How much time do I need to dedicate for being a reviewer?
Typically grant reviewers spend between 1-2 hours evaluating each application. We start with a short training on how to score the applications and then you will review them sometime within a 3-4-week period we provide. Grant reviews will begin no sooner than January 31st, 2022.
How to Apply:
Please email your resume and brief statement of interest to EEgrants@epa.gov by December 30, 2021 if you are interested in this professional development opportunity.
