USDA Seeks Peer Reviewers for Outreach and Assistance for Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers and Veteran Farmers and Ranchers Program
USDA is seeking qualified individuals to serve as peer reviewers for fiscal year 2020 proposals for the Outreach and Assistance for Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers and Veteran Farmers and Ranchers Program. This program, also known as the 2501 Program, helps socially disadvantaged, veteran, and beginning farmers and ranchers own and operate farms and ranches and ensures equal access to the full range of USDA programs and services in agriculture, forestry, and related programs. The peer review process will take approximately three to four weeks. Reviewers will examine proposals electronically for two to three weeks, then gather in Atlanta, Georgia, to finalize reviews and scoring. USDA will provide compensation and travel expenses for reviewers. If you are interested in serving on the peer review panel, and your affiliated organization is not applying for a 2501 grant, send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than April 30, 2020.
