Description of Employer
The Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations (PACDC) is the leading voice of equitable neighborhood revitalization in Philadelphia. As a membership association, PACDC fosters strong community development corporations and non-profit community organizations by enhancing their skills and advocating for resources and policies to create a just and inclusive Philadelphia. Our advocacy has led to more than $350 million in new local dollars for affordable homes and community economic development over the last 15 years, and our Community Development Leadership Institute has trained over 3,000 people since its founding in 2013. Together, PACDC and our members help create an equitable city where every Philadelphian lives, works, and thrives in a neighborhood that offers an excellent quality of life.
PACDC is seeking an experienced candidate to lead the PACDC Policy Team (which also includes the Executive Director, and the Health and Special Projects Manager) to advance a focused policy and advocacy agenda to expand and preserve resources for affordable homes and community development activities; improve systems and programs that enhance efforts to improve the quality of life in lower-income communities; and advance equitable development to ensure that lower-income residents and communities benefit from neighborhood revitalization. This position reports directly to the Executive Director.
