Self-Help Enterprises has an opening for an Administrative Analyst in our Partner Services (Housing Rehab) program.
Mutual self-help housing – a neighborhood of new property owners building each other’s homes – is a concept pioneered by Self-Help Enterprises in the 1960’s and remains representative of the values and goals of the organization. SHE’s New Homes program staff coordinate participant recruitment, mortgage financing, and construction management for groups of homebuilders who work together to build homes and a future for their families. By providing the labor necessary to construct the homes, participants reduce the costs of construction, build immediate equity, and gain an important asset for the future security of their families.
The Administrative Analyst will work directly with SHE partner cities and counties to prepare grant applications and environmental reports, identify housing needs, access federal, state and local resources, and implement housing rehabilitation, homebuyer assistance, and other related efforts. Position will handle grant administration and reporting, fiscal management, and contract development. The Administrative Analyst will at times represent SHE at public meetings/events.
