Resources for Abortion Delivery (RAD)
Established in 2016, Resources for Abortion Delivery (RAD) seeks to protect and improve access to quality abortion care in the United States—particularly for poor and low-income people—by providing financial and technical support, strategic thinking, legal compliance assistance, and information to the abortion provider community. RAD’s growing staff currently includes 10 full-time staff members working remotely across the U.S. RAD operates several programs including: a Loan and Grant Program, which provides capital support to eligible independent abortion providers; Regulatory Assistance for Abortion Providers (RAAP), which provides legal and regulatory compliance advice to abortion providers; and a Technical Assistance program that supports the existence and resiliency of the independent abortion delivery sector.
The Loan and Grant Program Manager will bring strong financial knowledge as well as excellent communication and project management skills to the Loan and Grant Program. This program seeks to promote the continued existence and resiliency of the independent abortion sector by offering funding that incentivizes, and removes financial barriers to, activities that protect, improve, or expand patient access to quality services at independent facilities. The Program Manager will report to the Director of Loan & Grant Funds and will be expected to work closely with other program staff. The Manager will support the day-to-day operations of RAD’s funding programs and will be responsible for executing key activities including financial health assessment, communication and relationship-building with abortion providers, application and report review and evaluation, compliance with internal protocols, and overall project and task management.
This position, the second Loan and Grant Program Manager on the team, was recently created to support the execution of RAD’s new strategic plan that calls for significant program growth.
This position will have regular ongoing responsibilities but is also expected to be flexible and adapt quickly to changing priorities as RAD is a growing organization, and RAD staff work as a nimble and fast-paced team. The Program Manager will primarily work remotely, with monthly in-person meetings on the East Coast; the Manager’s supervisor is based in the New York City area.
