RHLS is seeking a staff attorney for its Pittsburgh office. This attorney will be responsible for providing legal counsel and technical assistance to community-based nonprofit organizations that are engaged in affordable housing development and community development. We anticipate that the staff attorney will spend the majority of time working with small or medium sized nonprofits, which are either newly formed or relatively new to affordable housing and community development. We expect this work to range from helping a group to incorporate and obtain tax-exempt status, to assisting with trouble-shooting, to providing guidance to nonprofits entering into joint venture agreements with experienced developers to helping nonprofit organizations successfully complete small scale and localized development projects.
In addition, one of the primary goals of this position will be to increase RHLS’s presence in the Pittsburgh market. Accordingly, in addition to providing direct legal and technical assistance to nonprofits, the Staff Attorney will also engage in a significant amount of outreach to nonprofits and other community partners.
