West Sacramento, CA
Job Function: Other
Posted: April 2, 2019

Background:

Founded in 1978, RCAC works collaboratively to build the capacity of organizations that serve low-income people living in the rural west. RCAC’s vision is to create vibrant, healthy, and enduring rural communities

RCAC provides a wide range of services, including technical assistance and training for environmental infrastructure, affordable housing development, economic and leadership development, and loans to support a broad array of community and economic development goals. These services are available for communities with fewer than 50,000 people and are delivered in partnership with the rural communities served.

As a regional leader, RCAC partners with national and regional organizations to deliver services. It is one of six regional partners that comprise the Rural Community Assistance Partnership, which advocates for safe drinking water and the needs of small water and wastewater systems. It is one of four regional organizations providing technical support to the USDA Self-Help Housing network and is a HUD Intermediary and Training grantee in the Housing Counseling Program. RCAC actively partners with the Housing Assistance Council, Rural LISC, and Enterprise Community Partners. RCAC is certified as a community development financial institution (CDFI) by the U.S. Department of Treasury; has investments from financial institutions, foundations, religious investors, and retirement accounts; and is a member of both the Opportunity Finance Network and the CDFI Coalition.

Nationally, RCAC is an active and passionate advocate for rural communities.

RCAC’s programs and services are informed by core values:
● Leadership: identifies innovative strategies to further rural community and economic
development and inspires partners to achieve great outcomes.
● Collaboration: achieves superior results by respectfully and inclusively identifying and working with partners.
● Commitment: works with passion and dedication to improve rural communities and the
lives of their low-income residents.
● Quality: produces exceptional work products to help its partners meet their goals.
● Integrity: practices the highest professional standards and cultural competency in its work.

RCAC programs include:

• Housing: RCAC provides technical and training support to housing counseling organizations and self-help housing organizations and serves as a developer or development consultant to expand the supply of rural rental housing, including partnering with organizations that lack the capacity to develop on their own. Working with Native Capital Access, RCAC operates a Tribal Housing Excellence Academy (THE Academy) to build development capacity on Native lands. 18 staff work in housing.

• Environmental: RCAC provides assistance to small municipal and nonprofit water, wastewater and solid waste systems. RCAC provides small communities with technical, managerial, and financial capacity building to operate safe, sanitary and sustainable systems. RCAC is also a major source of training for rural operators and boards. Most of RCAC’s recent growth can be attributed to growth in the environmental program, which now has more than 60 employees, and continues to grow.

• Community and Economic Development: RCAC provides community organizing, leadership development and access to resources through the “Building Rural Economies” program that supports communities as they chart their own development goals. The program focuses on place-based asset building and entrepreneurial development that recognizes the resiliency and challenges of rural communities. 7 staff work in this effort.

• Lending: RCAC’s loan fund provides a diverse set of loan products that are responsive to the needs of rural communities including: housing, environmental, community facility and small business loans. In its most recent AERIS 4 stars AA+ rating, the loan fund received high marks for its financial strengths, alignment of mission and impact, and commitment to policy changes. There is high demand for RCAC’s loan products. 15 staff work on lending activities.

• Native Communities: All RCAC services are available to and have a priority to work with Tribes and Native communities. Four programs are designed specifically for Tribes: Tribal Circuit Riders, who work with water operators and administrators to ensure the delivery of safe drinking water on Reservations served and including training through Native American Water Masters Associations, which bring utility staff from multiple Tribes together for peer learning opportunities and to build a professional network; THE Academy, a program with Native Capital Access (NCA) that includes a three year initiative to apply best practices in leveraging resources historically underutilized by Tribes and Native communities to increase the number and type of housing units produced on Native lands; the Rainmakers Collaborative, a partnership effort with Confluence Philanthropy, Native Capital Access and a number of foundations designed to increase the access to capital for the Tribes, Tribal communities and individual Native Americans for small business, housing and community facility projects in Arizona and New Mexico; and the Building Rural Economies program, specifically adapted to work with Tribes and Native people. 22 staff focus their work on Tribes and Native Communities.

RCAC is governed by a diverse board of directors; there are currently 12 members from 10 different states. The board brings a deep commitment to working to empower and improve rural communities, experience in RCAC’s practice areas, and an understanding of the cultural and economic issues unique to communities in the rural west.

RCAC’s estimated annual budget is $20M, with total assets in excess of $100M and net assets of more than $42M. Grants and contracts account for approximately two thirds of the annual budget. The U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, and the Environmental Protection Agency provide operating support of between $1 and $4M dollars each year. RCAC also receives significant funding from states, particularly the State of California, which provides $4M. Earned income from lending activities account for $4.6M of revenue. RCAC has been successfully diversifying its funding base and federal funding has gone from 85% of the total budget to 60%.

Headquartered in West Sacramento, RCAC currently employs more than 140 staff – an increase of 35 employees in two years. The senior leadership team includes the CFO; Controller; Community and Environmental Services Director; Housing Director; Loan Fund Director; Director Information Technology; and Director Communications, Development, and Events.

Impact Internship Aeris

Background:

Aeris accelerates the flow of capital to good by driving accountability and transparency into impact investing. Since 2004, Aeris has rated more than 120 community development loan funds (CDFIs) on financial strength and performance, and impact management, and provided due diligence, data, and consulting to nearly 150 impact investment institutions including foundations, banks, wealth managers, insurance companies, pension funds, and government agencies. In 2013, Aeris introduced the Aeris Cloud, a web-based data platform that provides highly-nuanced quarterly financial, portfolio, and impact data and analytics on community development loan funds that support investor due diligence and monitoring.

In 2015, working with the Global Impact Investing Network (the GIIN), impact investors, and CDFIs, Aeris launched the first phase of a project to help change the impact narrative of CDFIs, helping them to better connect to impact investors. In June 2016, we issued a guidance paper presenting impact focus areas and related standardized impact metrics, and in 2017 we started collecting standardized impact data from approximately 100 reporting CDFIs.

Position Summary:

Aeris seeks a college upperclassman to support the next phase of the impact data project during a 6 to 8-week summer internship. This is an exciting opportunity to learn about how CDFIs and investors approach impact measurement and alignment. The position reports directly to Senior Manager for Operations and Ratings, and will also work closely with the Chief Operating Officer and the President & CEO. The intern will be responsible for communicating directly with CDFIs to confirm assigned sustainable development goals and required impact data for each reporting institution.

Responsibilities:

Specific responsibilities will include:
• Confirming with CDFIs (by email and phone) the sustainable development goals and related impact focus areas and associated impact metrics.
• Responding to inquiries by CDFIs about impact metric reporting.
