HRSA uses health professions subject experts as peer reviewers to objectively evaluate a competitive group of grant applications against the published criteria in the HRSA Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). Reviewers are chosen based on their knowledge, education, experience and any criteria included in FOA that the applicants must respond to.
HRSA has specific interest in the following:
All professionals working in or knowledgeable about Health Care Services are invited to register in our Reviewer Recruitment Module database (RRM).
HRSA has identified specific areas of expertise that are not as well represented in RRM as are others. These are:
HRSA uses an on-line grant review process called ARM, available 24/7 during the evaluation cycle to accommodate reviewer flexibility.
Each eligible application is read by at least 3 reviewers who then discuss their evaluation and initial scores with other reviewers on their panel. This process is completed for each application using the internet and telephone, a process that most often takes 3 days or less.
Each non-federal participant in the entire process receives an honorarium.
If you have expertise in these areas and are interested in becoming a HRSA Grant Reviewer, register in the HRSA Reviewer Recruitment Module.
