Peer Reviewers Needed for MCCS Grant Activities

dollar signsCan you help MCCS identify the best investments of public dollars? The Commission grant selection process uses external peer reviewers who volunteer their expertise to read and rate proposals.


Grant application reviews will likely go from November through early December but no travel is required. Everything is done using technology (phone, computer, internet). You don't even have to be in Maine! Volunteer from wherever you are.


Experts in volunteer programming, service-learning, literacy, energy efficiency, housing, community health, career prep and job training, education, and more are needed. Apply now!
