Reporting to the Funding Navigator Director, the Mid-Atlantic Manager will lead and advance EPIC’s efforts to connect utilities in overburdened, underserved municipalities with technical assistance, community engagement, and state and federal funds for infrastructure. The focus will be on municipalities in the Mid-Atlantic region, with additional work outside the region as needed. We are looking for someone with water sector experience, experience managing projects that involve teams of contractors or stakeholders; engaging with state program staff, water utility managers, municipal leaders, or environmental justice groups; building or leading diverse coalitions; or experience with infrastructure funding programs. An example of an ideal candidate might be an engineer or operator with public works experience or a project manager who has connected municipalities with public funds for capital projects.
We seek candidates who can manage EPIC’s Mid-Atlantic Funding Navigator projects within a small organizational structure and help build momentum working with engineers, state agencies, EPA, other nonprofits, and technical assistance providers.
Qualified candidates should send an email to Lilly Slaughter at [email protected] with “Manager, Funding Navigator” in the subject line. Please include a resume and a cover letter labeled with your last name, followed by the document type (e.g. “Ibrahim_Resume”). We believe that including more people from a broad diversity of backgrounds, including people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ people, is essential for achieving our vision. We strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.
