The mission of the Administration for Community Living (ACL) is to maximize the independence, well-being, and health of older adults, people with disabilities across the lifespan, and their families and caregivers.

Each year, ACL convenes panels of experts to objectively analyze and score eligible grant applications. ACL uses these scores to rank applications, and these rankings shape ACL’s decisions about which organizations will receive discretionary grant funds. ACL relies on this objective assessment by experts in the field to guide funding decisions that impact the Aging and Disability communities.

ACL recruits experienced professionals who possess subject matter expertise and qualifications relevant to ACL’s specific program areas. These experts serve as panel reviewers. Panel reviewers should have knowledge and direct experience working with communities that ACL serves. Panel reviewers objectively analyze, score, and comment on ACL grant applications.

Reviewers are not required to travel to participate in ACL grant reviews, which are conducted via teleconference discussion following individual review of applications. Reviewers provide scores and comments for individual applications via a web-based software system.
