The Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission pays the City rate of $250/day for panelists and then per diem, transportation reimbursement, hotel accommodations for the time spent. We provide breakfast and lunch for panel.  If someone is here for at least 6 hours, it counts as a full day.  Generally they read up to 70 grant applications.  For my last panel, length of service was 2 ½ days.

Hello esteemed colleagues,


I had a question recently and thought it would be helpful to consult the network. 


What are orgs paying to grant review panelists? If possible, can you share any additional reimbursements, length of service and rough estimate of number of apps they are reading?


Thank you!!
