Background:

Community Housing Capital (CHC) is a national community development financial institution (CDFI) that finances the creation and preservation of affordable housing.  CHC aggregates loan capital to fund the activities of the 245 non-profit, community-based organizations within the NeighborWorks America network.  CHC provides pre-development, acquisition, construction, and permanent loans for single-family and multifamily projects.  Through its partnership with and financial support from NeighborWorks America and the CDFI Fund of the US Treasury, CHC is able to attract private capital from banks and social impact investors.  These funds are essential to supporting underserved communities in which traditional lenders are often reluctant to invest.

Since its inception in 2000, CHC’s lending activities have supported $2.1 billion in development around the country.  These activities have supported the construction or preservation of approximately 18,000 units of affordable housing.  In FY17 alone, CHC had $106 million of loan activity, funding 2,015 affordable housing units.  The organization has $210 million of loans under management at present.  Its total assets are $120 million, and its net assets are $32 million.

Recognizing that a person’s opportunity for happiness and success begins at home, CHC has focused its activities on increasing and preserving the inventory of affordable housing by investing in the work of the development community.  CHC boasts strong relationships with its borrowers, all of whom are part of the NeighborWorks America network.  CHC’s lending to real estate and community developers allows for the financial feasibility of building and preserving these affordable housing developments. 

CHC operates nationally out of its office in Decatur, Georgia, a historic city just east of Atlanta.  The staff consists of approximately 20 people working in lending, credit, loan administration, finance, and administration.  CHC is governed by a 13-member Board of Directors consisting of a group of national community development leaders, one-third of whom are Executive Directors of NeighborWorks America organizations.

  • Analyze the benefits and drawbacks of various scenarios (including organic growth, mergers and acquisitions) that could allow CHC to expand its reach and impact.

Capital Raising and Business Development

  • Develop and implement a marketing plan to build new relationships with the capital markets and to increase and diversify available lending capital.
  • Build close relationships with affordable housing developers nationally to understand their unique needs and overall goals in an effort to provide them with effective financial tools to complete their capital stack.
  • Develop and execute new lending programs and initiatives for CHC, which could include pursuing New Market Tax Credits and funding non-housing projects such as schools, healthcare centers, and other community facilities.  New product development is intended to innovate as the needs of the field change.
  • Represent CHC in the local, regional and national community development and finance industry.

Requirements:

Experience: Minimum of 15 years of progressive experience and leadership in the community development, non-profit and/or financial services sector, with strong proficiency in lending and/or affordable housing.

Manager, Program Initiatives Reinvestment Fund, Inc.
Philadelphia, PA
Job Function: Project Management
Posted: May 24, 2018

Background:

Reinvestment Fund is a financial services company functioning as a catalyst for change in low-income communities.  As a non-profit founded in 1985, we have invested over $2B in underserved communities. Our strategies integrate data, policy and strategic investments to improve the quality of life in low-income neighborhoods. Using analytical and financial tools, we bring high-quality grocery stores, affordable housing, schools and health centers to the communities that need better access—creating anchors that attract investment over the long term and help families lead healthier, more productive lives. Reinvestment Fund is headquartered in Philadelphia, with offices in Baltimore and Atlanta. Presently, we have $1B in assets under management, manage investments from 865 unique investors, and maintain a high investment grade rating of AA from S&P. To learn more about Reinvestment Fund, visit www.reinvestment.com

Reinvestment Fund brings together individual investors, banks, government officials, private foundations and faith-based and community organizations to invest in projects that transform communities. Reinvestment Fund supports its financing and development with a strong research and policy analysis capacity that has become a highly regarded source of unbiased information for public officials, policymakers and private (for- and not-for-profit) investors. Reinvestment Fund’s analytical strength is also reflected in its national online data and mapping tool that is available for all internet users at www.policymap.com. 

ABOUT PROGRAM INITIATIVES:

The program team at Reinvestment Fund focuses on design, implementation, and evaluation of program initiatives, including the second phase of Invest Health, a pioneering collaboration between Reinvestment Fund and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Invest Health was designed to empower cross-sector leaders representing the public, community development, finance and other sectors in mid-size cities across the country working to improve community health. Teams of leaders built lasting partnerships that maximize private and public investments in the interest of solving problems in the parts of their city hardest hit by poor health and economic isolation.    

The follow up phase of Invest Health will continue to focus on the social determinants of health for those who live in low-income communities and face challenges in their ability to lead healthy lives today and for generations to come. A scarcity of quality jobs, inadequate housing, a lack of affordable, fresh food and poor environmental conditions all disproportionately affect low-income Americans.

The community development and public sectors have long worked to improve these conditions—through the development of affordable housing, workforce education programs, the construction of supermarkets in low-income communities, and much more—but building a culture of health requires a more holistic, cross-sector approach. Invest Health has empowered local leaders to continue improving the social, economic, and environmental determinants of health, shift funding flows, and align institutions to enable more effective absorption of capital—advancing a culture of health across the nation. 

The next 2 years of the work will emphasize sustaining the work of the 50 cities; building the field of community development finance institutions (CDFIs), other capital providers and stakeholders investing in smaller cities; and provide catalytic support to a subset of the 50 cities best positioned to capture the near-term successes from Invest Health and propel and sustain longer-term collaboration and progress on built environment projects that impact health outcomes and equity.

Position Summary:

This is a grant-funded position categorized as regular full time until June 2020. Reporting directly to the Director of Program Initiatives, the Manager, Program Initiatives works independently and collaboratively with Invest Health staff, program participants, consultants, vendors, and other constituents to provide quality control for the organization’s program through methods such as planning, managing, and implementing activities in the following areas: quality assurance and customer service; meeting design, coordination, and minutes; web and social media content design; grant/contract management; grant and report writing; budget management; database management; research and evaluation support; and administrative support.
