Operations and Grants Assistant

Funders for Housing and Opportunity (FHO) brings the nation’s leading funders together from across sectors and perspectives to ensure access to a safe, stable rental housing in communities that supports better health, economic mobility, and educational achievement, free from the barriers and harms of systemic racism. This is accomplished primarily through grant making and learning exchanges in FHO’s three priority areas:  policy, advocacy, and organizing; narrative change; and elevating what works. FHO has prioritized racial equity in its work, and seeks to change housing policies, practices, and institutions that have perpetuated a system of discrimination in housing and harm to communities of color. More information can be found on our website, www.housingisopportunity.org.


Funders for Housing and Opportunity  seeks a self-motivated, detail-oriented team-player with a strong commitment to housing justice and the mission of FHO to fill its Operations and Grants Assistant position. This is a new position responsible for managing the administrative and logistical operations of FHO, including database management, grant tracking, meeting logistics, scheduling and calendar management, and vendor/contractor payments. FHO has a small but mighty team (5 FTEs when fully staffed) and is looking for a self-motivated, highly collaborative quick learner to fill this critical role.
