Senior Grant Manager
Anthos|Home is an innovative new nonprofit that will transform the system by which New York City residents with housing subsidies locate and rent available housing.
Anthos|Home is modeled on Brilliant Corners in California, a successful housing clearinghouse that uses a flexible pool of funding to administer and quickly find apartments for tenants.
Anthos|Home will help to streamline the apartment search, approval, and move-in processes, and fill in gaps in the current NYC voucher housing market process. The organization will be a game- changer for New Yorkers who are unhoused or at risk of homelessness and for the public systems that serve them.
The Senior Grant Manager will oversee grant writing and management for Anthos|Home and its operations. The Senior Grant Manager will also support our housing nonprofit organization to create compelling content to be used in developing our materials and processes, and also support communication both within and outside of the organization.
The Senior Grant Manager will work with the organization’s leadership to develop funding leads and research grant opportunities. The position will focus on both private foundation support and government grants including federal, state, and local funding. In this position, the Senior Grant Manager will manage applications for funding to support existing and future projects. The Senior Grant Manager will report to the CEO and will also work closely with the Chief Strategy Officer. As a new and growing organization, Anthos|Home expects to have a funding and contract portfolio that is rapidly growing and evolving with multiple sources of revenue.
This position is envisioned to be a critical partner to the leadership team and provides a unique opportunity to assist with the creation of a strategic funding strategy for a new nonprofit organization in NYC. The Senior Grant Manager will be essential in the overall success of the organization and its growth.
