Are ACYF grant reviewers compensated for reviews?


All grant reviewers (local or out-of-town) for on-site reviews receive $150 per day of review participation. Panel chairpersons (local or out-of-town) receive $200 per day. Generally, payment is made on the last day of the review. This payment is subject to Federal income tax. Transportation will be provided for out-of-town reviewers and panel chairpersons (you must live 50 miles outside of Washington D.C.). Airfare is paid for directly by the ACYF contractor. Out-of-town reviewers and chairpersons who wish to travel to and from the review by a personally owned vehicle must secure ACYF approval before travel begins. If approved, this traveler will be reimbursed at the federally established rate per mile traveled ($.485, effective 2/1/07). Ground transportation expenses during the review are limited to $75.00 total. Rental car expenses will not be reimbursed. Receipts for expenses must be submitted. Local reviewers will be reimbursed for ground transportation expenses. A logistics coordinator will assist reviewers and chairpersons with their travel arrangements. Out-of-town reviewers are provided with a combination of meals and per diem during the onsite review period. Per Diem is usually received at the end of the review week. All grant reviewers who live 50 miles or more from the review site must stay in the selected hotel for the entire review due to the intense review schedule (including early mornings and late evenings). The cost of lodging is paid for directly by the ACYF contractor.
