The Chicago Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) has reached out to request volunteers to serve as reviewers for proposals submitted through its Chicago Early Learning RFP. The RFP invited current funded Delegate Agencies and Partners to apply for a continuation of funding to serve children and families birth-5 across a variety of program models.
In short, DFSS is asking for assistance in reviewing and “rating” proposals submitted. There is no compensation involved; this is purely an act of good citizenship. Both experienced and novice proposal reviewers are welcome to participate. This is an opportunity for you to learn more about the proposal review process and to better understand the landscape of early childhood services in Chicago.
Volunteers will need to set aside time to:
- View a recorded DFSS-led training on the scoring matrix
- Sign a confidentiality agreement form
- Score between 4 to 10 proposals before 7/19
If you would like to volunteer (or learn more), please reach out to Rima Malhotra, Manager of Family Support Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks for considering this opportunity to support DFSS's investments in the city.
