Funders for Housing and Opportunity (FHO) seeks a self-motivated, skilled project manager and strategic thought partner knowledgeable about housing justice, local government, and grantmaking to fill its term-limited (2-3 years) Program Officer position. The Program Officer, in consultation with the FHO Project Director and external partners, is responsible for managing all grantmaking aspects of the Partnership for Equitable and Resilient Communities (PERC), a new public-private partnership between philanthropy and the federal government. PERC will provide financial, technical, and capacity resources to encourage and support up to 12 local sites to absorb and deploy federal resources in ways that remove the barriers of systemic racism in their institutions. In managing the PERC grant fund, the Program Officer will be responsible for developing and overseeing a transparent grant selection and grant deployment process for the sites - from process design and prospecting to grantee selection and grant deployment. The Program Officer will represent FHO with lead philanthropic partners and consultants who are providing overall project management for other aspects of PERC (e.g., capacity support to the sites, program evaluation, technical assistance, grantee learning community, communication hub, etc.). The ideal candidate will be a proactive, fast-moving, and entrepreneurial individual who can fully and efficiently own projects and workflows from start to finish.

This is a fully remote/work from home position and the Program Officer does not need to be physically located in Washington, DC.  The full job description and application instructions can be found here:
