Grants & Contracts Manager

CSPI, your food and health watchdog, is one of the nation’s leading public health advocacy organizations with a 50-year record of fighting for science in the public interest. We’ve led efforts to win passage of many state and local policies to improve school foods, put calories on chain restaurant menus and menu boards, and remove sugary drinks from children’s menus. National policy successes include the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act; Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act; Food Safety Modernization Act; and Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act. 


The Center for Science in the Public Interest’s legislative, advocacy, and regulatory campaigns work in partnership with communities as they explore innovative food and nutrition policy strategies at the local, state, and federal level. These campaigns are often grant-funded and CSPI serves as a re-grantor to community-based organizations to advance a just and equitable food environment and ultimately reduce the burden of diet-related diseases. 

CSPI is searching for a Grants & Contracts Manager to lead financial and grant management functions for all CSPI grants, including a multi-year grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies (BP) and associated subgrant contracts.  

This position oversees a wide range of project management tools, procedures, processes, and functions, and manages budgeting and reporting of all grants and subgrant expenditures. This position works closely with CSPI’s Program Manager, the Director of Development, Gift Officers, Finance Director, Chief Operating Officer, and reports to the Vice President of Programs.
