Grant Reviewers

We use subject matter experts as peer reviewers to objectively evaluate a competitive group of grant applications against the published criteria in the HRSA Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).

We choose reviewers based on their knowledge, education, experience and any criteria included in the NOFO to which the applicants must respond.  

Areas of Interest

  • Health workforce training
  • Maternal and child health
  • Organ transplantation
  • Primary care for underserved people
  • Rural health

If you are working in, or knowledgeable about healthcare services, register via our Reviewer Recruitment Module (RRM).

We especially want to identify qualified reviewers with expertise in social, cultural or healthcare issues of rural, migrant or Native American populations. 

Grant Review Process

We use an online grant review process called ARM, available 24/7 during the evaluation cycle to accommodate reviewer flexibility.

Each eligible application is read by at least three reviewers. Reviewers then discuss their evaluation and initial scores with those on their panel. You'll complete this process using the internet and telephone, which most often takes three days or less.   

Each non-federal participant in the entire process receives an honorarium.
