TCB Approach to Utilizing the Grant
In most communities, a major impact of the ongoing mortgage and financial crises has been a rapid growth in the number of foreclosed and/or vacant and abandoned single-family homes. Consequently, there has been relatively little attention given to foreclosed multifamily properties and larger areas of vacant land. The flexibility allowed under the NSP2 program regulations makes it a powerful tool for a comprehensive neighborhood approach, and we believe the communities in which we deploy NSP2 funds specifically around multifamily revitalization would receive considerable benefits from this approach.
This position is a staff position within the NSP2 program. The position reports to and is supervised by the NSP2 Program Director. The primary responsibilities of this position are twofold. First, this position will be responsible for monitoring the status of all residents in properties purchased with NSP2 funds. This responsibility will include confirming that all legally mandated notices to residents were properly delivered within the required timeframe and that each resident was notified of their rights under the Uniform Relocation Act. Second, this position will be responsible for confirming the eligibility of all vendors, contractors, or subcontractors who are seeking to be paid with NSP2 funds.
The successful candidate will have a Masters degree in planning or a bachelor’s degree and a minimum of five years work experience. Second, preference will be given to candidates with experience in resident relocation either directly or indirectly. Third, this candidate should also have experience in either creating or maintaining a database that tracks benefits to residents or other consumers. Last, the successful candidate should have experience processing invoices in an automated accounting environment.
