If you or someone you know is interested in participating in OVW's peer reviews process, we would like to hear from you.
To assist OVW in assessing the merits of grant applications, OVW uses active practitioners or recent retirees who possess subject matter expertise and experience addressing domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and/or stalking. OVW peer reviewers represent various professions and disciplines.
Each year, OVW conducts both in-person and online reviews. Peer reviews typically occur during the months of March and April.
Please note that technical assistance providers seeking to participate in peer review are prohibited from reviewing applications in specific OVW programs for which they provide training and technical assistance. Furthermore, OVW does not use "professional" peer reviewers, i.e. individuals whose substantive experience in our areas of interest is limited to the review of applications.
