DoEd Seeks ‘Neighborhood’ Peer Reviewers

US-DeptOfEducation-Seal_LargeThe Education Dept’s Office of Innovation and Improvement seeks applications from educator willing to serve as peer reviewers for the FY 2016 Promise Neighborhoods implementation grant competition (CFDA Number: 84.215N).

Deadline: Aug. 15.

Promise Neighborhoods is a competitive grant program that supports cradle-to-college and career services designed to improve educational and developmental outcomes for students in distressed neighborhoods. Evidence shows that children who are low-income and grow up in high-poverty neighborhoods face education and life challenges above and beyond those faced by children who are low-income and grow up in neighborhoods with low levels of poverty.

Even if applicants previously applied to be a peer reviewer under the Promise Neighborhoods program or any other DoEd competition, they must please submit a current resume and peer reviewer application form to Richard.Kress@ed.gov to be considered for this new competition in 2016.
