The American City Coalition
The American City Coalition (TACC), a nonprofit organization that serves as both a catalyst and thought leader for urban planning, economic development, and supportive service strategies in poverty-concentrated urban neighborhoods, is seeking a new Executive Director. The new leader will be expected to guide the organization into the future by leveraging its past successes, sustaining its internal culture of collaboration and innovation, and strengthening its capacity to scale up its impact. While TACC is recognized as an independent voice working to improve quality of life and access to opportunities in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty in Boston and throughout the Northeast, currently, its primary focus areas are the neighborhoods of Lower Roxbury and the Fairmount Indigo Corridor.
Rooted in comprehensive, mixed-income housing development, TACC facilitates multi-sector partnerships and promotes holistic approaches to balanced real estate development, community planning, economic development, and supportive service strategies. The organization provides technical assistance and collaborates with a wide range of stakeholders (local resident groups, elected officials, government entities, community-based organizations, public housing authorities, and nonprofit and private developers). Facilitating research and its dissemination, TACC works to ensure quality data and assessments are easily accessible to stakeholders engaged in strategic planning, programming, and other efforts to guide equitable and sustainable neighborhood revitalization.
Reporting to the board chair and the board of directors, the Executive Director will be responsible for a budget of 1.3 million and a 5 member staff of talented and committed professionals.
This leadership position requires a person who combines a passionate commitment to social and economic justice, sensitivity to community needs, and strong management skills to lead this organization, which occupies a unique and important position in Roxbury and Boston.
