Grant Reviewer Requirements


Each year, the Louisiana Children’s Trust Fund (LCTF) releases a statewide funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to community stakeholders for programmatic and conference reimbursement grants.  Grant applications received are first evaluated by the Executive Director for compliance with LCTF requirements.  Applications that meet the requirements are then randomly assigned to volunteer grant review team who are responsible for independently reviewing and scoring the individual applications.  The three scores are combined and an average composite score determined.  The scores are forwarded to the LCTF Board of Directors’ Grant Review Committee which makes recommendations to the LCTF’s Board of Directors to approve entities that should be funded.  All applicants that are recommended for funding receive final approval from the LCTF Board of Directors.

Who’s Eligible

Grant reviewers are typically individuals with a child and family or education related background that possess a bachelor’s degree or higher and are willing to commit the necessary time to thoroughly review no more than 5 grant applications.  The average grant application is no more than 10-12 pages and usually takes between 30-60 minutes to review and score.

Expectations of Reviewers

  • Attend a 1-hour training in person at a location nearest to the interested reviewer
  • Sign a confidentiality and consent form
  • Commit to review and submit scores for the assigned 3-5 applications by the deadline provided by LCTF
  • Comply with LCTF grant review policies
