BOSTON, MA—The Community Builders, Inc. (“TCB” www.tcbinc.org), is a leading national developer and operator of mixed-income communities. With an annual budget of over $40 million, TCB is one of the largest non-profit urban affordable housing developers in the United States. Since 1964, we have successfully developed over 25,000 affordable and mixed-income rental and for-sale homes for families, seniors and handicapped residents in nine states in the Northeast, the Mid-Atlantic, and the Midwest regions. TCB communities are financed by a combination of private and public funding sources, including low income housing credit investment, Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgage insurance, Section 8 subsidies, up-front grants, Section 202 grants and loans, Hope VI, and other housing grants and loans.
TCB is a mission-driven organization with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status focused on building and sustaining strong communities. Our organization achieves its mission by developing, financing and operating high-quality affordable rental and for-sale housing. We implement neighborhood self-help initiatives to drive economic opportunity for our residents, coordinating access to support services and asset-building activities and shaping community programs critical to the communities we serve. TCB is adept at managing master planning aimed at the transformation of distressed neighborhoods. Since the mid-‘90s, TCB has focused its real estate development, property management and community initiatives on the challenges of concentrated poverty in and around large public and assisted housing projects. Within the past few years TCB also has also made a significant investment in the acquisition and preservation of privately-owned assisted housing. TCB manages approximately 9,000 units in more than 90 developments and coordinates community and resident services at more than 20 large assisted and public housing sites. Our organization has over four hundred employees with three regional hubs in Boston, Chicago, and Washington and dozens of project site offices.
For most of the past 40 years, TCB has been changing and growing in response to political, market and industry changes and opportunities. Managing that growth is a continuous challenge and requires a consistent investment in operational excellence. TCB currently employs approximately 60 professionals in the development department and related positions and operates in 15 states across three regions. The Deputy Director of Development Operations will report to the Senior Vice President of Development Operations, who oversees the execution of all of TCB’s development projects. This includes design, entitlements, financing and construction. Project origination and delivery is managed through TCB’s three regional hubs. Oversight, coordination and support are provided to the development staff by the centrally located development operations group. This group works closely with TCB’s in-house legal department, and the Deputy Director of Development Operations will also provide a limited amount of operational support to TCB’s general counsel.

Anything and everything which contributes to this goal will be within the province of the holder of this position.
