WDE Seeks Grant Reviewers for the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program

CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) seeks qualified peer-reviewers for the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program (21stCCLC) competitive grant review process that will be conducted online in August 2020.

This grant program provides funding to organizations (local education agencies, nonprofits, faith-based and other community-based organizations, American Indian tribes, institutions of higher education, etc.) to provide high-quality afterschool academic support and enrichment programs for students and families that include community partnerships. This peer review application process ensures that each competitive grant is awarded based on funding priorities in the 21stCCLC statute. ​

Selected reviewers will read, evaluate, and score proposals on a detailed rubric, and collaborate with others via a virtual platform; reviewers will receive $1,275 for participating.

Reviewers must be available to participate in a virtual training on June 11, 2020 or June 15, 2020, and again in August to discuss proposals that show scoring disparities.

Interested parties should complete the 21st CCLC Peer Reviewer Profile online. All reviewer information must be submitted no later than 4 p.m. on May 11, 2020 and selected participants will be notified by email May 15, 2020.
