The Public Interest Network operates more than a dozen organizations committed to a shared vision of a better world and a strategic approach to social change. These groups include U.S. PIRG, Environment America, Green Corps, and the National Environmental Law Center and encompass 400-plus staff. We tackle some of the biggest challenges facing our country today, such as delivering clean air, clean water and a livable climate to the next generation; transforming our energy and transportation systems for the 21st century; growing food in ways that leave both people and the planet healthier; and responding to the worst public health crisis in a century.
ABOUT THE POSITION
The Public Interest Network is seeking a Grant Writing Associate to work with network’s advocates, organizers, attorneys, executive directors, and development staff to raise grant funding for a wide array of public interest campaigns and programs.
Over the past 50 years, our mission-driven, results-oriented approach has led to hundreds of victories. In just the past few years, we helped convince California, New Mexico, Washington state, Maine and Virginia to commit to 100% carbon-free energy, and Maryland and Maine to ban the single-use plastic foam products that are polluting our planet. But there's more to do.
In order to achieve these results, the groups in The Public Interest Network need a strong backup staff to provide the resources, guidance and infrastructure it takes to make progress on these issues.
