FSCG Grant Review Volunteers
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer community reviewer for the Family Services Community Grants (FSCG) program. Your involvement is important to us in making informed decisions to increase programs for individuals with autism and their families across Canada. Since 2010, $4 million has been funded to over 280 organizations to increase their capacity through the creation, expansion and development of programs to support individuals and families impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
GRANT REVIEW VOLUNTEERS
Reviewers include individuals with autism spectrum disorder, family members, friends, community members and service professionals. An ideal reviewer is familiar with local organizations, service providers, and community programs that support individuals with autism. This is a great opportunity for Autism Speaks Canada volunteers to share their expertise and knowledge at a national level.
Grants are reviewed annually; reviewers are asked to review 10-15 applications. It takes approximately 30-45 minutes to review one grant application. Scoring of applications are completed and submitted through our online system. If you require printed paper versions, we can courier a package to you. Reviews take place over August-September with scored applications due September 29, 2019.
CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
Conflicts of interest include, but are not limited to, a pre-existing relationship between a grantee and a reviewer (e.g.: receiving services from an organization, place of employment). All conflicts are declared at the beginning of the process and reviewers will not review applications from these organizations.
