Since 1984, Share Our Strength® has led the fight against hunger and poverty by inspiring and organizing individuals and businesses to share their strengths. Today, through the No Kid Hungry and Cooking Matters campaigns, Share Our Strength is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need. No child should go hungry in America – we’re on our way to making that a reality and we want you to join us. We’re bold, creative, always open to new ideas, and 100% dedicated to our mission. If that sounds like you, we’d like you to consider becoming part of our team.
The Senior Policy Manager will be responsible for identifying opportunities for federal, state, and local level policy change to address hunger and poverty through our newly growing Family Economic Opportunity (FEO) work. Our vision is to address poverty and food insecurity for single mothers, especially the key barriers they face to achieving economic mobility. This body of work has focused to date on connecting low-income families to tax credits, especially the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) but will be expanding to new programs moving forward. The Senior Policy Manager will help to lead the development and articulation of the organization’s FEO policy priorities and provide key analysis and support needed to pursue those including assessing proposed legislation and other policy opportunities; developing policy resources; providing technical assistance and policy expertise to partners; identifying policy trends and best practices; and tracking legislation and policy changes.
The role is preferably based in Washington, DC, but could be fully remote for the right candidate. This position offers a range $85,000-$91,000.
