Job Description:

Reporting to the Chief Officer for Leased Housing Programs, the Director is responsible for direct oversight and implementation of a new Mobility Counseling Program aimed at affirmatively furthering fair housing and using evidence-based policy innovation to improve economic and social mobility for Section 8 Voucher Holders.  Building upon prior research documenting the concentration of Voucher Holders in distressed neighborhoods and informed by BHA-specific data and national best practices, the Mobility Counseling Program will aim to help Section 8 Voucher Holders move into opportunity-rich areas with strong schools, safe streets, and access to jobs and transportation in Boston and the BHA’s Greater Boston service area.
The Director will develop and implement data-informed strategies and policies that address the barriers currently limiting voucher use in higher-opportunity areas.  S/he will lead efforts to identify such areas on behalf of the BHA, researching issues related to local housing markets, opportunity indicators, voucher use, and residential segregation.  S/he will also be responsible for developing the informational resources, tools, and training needed to support families as they make informed housing choices from a wider set of neighborhood options.  S/he will work closely with a range of BHA departments, external community partners, academic and policy researchers, HUD, DHCD, and City of Boston agencies to create and implement the Mobility Counseling Program.  The Director will also be responsible for continued evaluation and alteration of the Mobility Counseling Program and the supervision of Mobility Counseling Program staff.
