Project Director for the Advancing Strategies to Align Programs (ASAP) Project
MLRI has been awarded a grant to support public policy advocacy to increase the share of low-income individuals and families in Massachusetts who receive and retain the full package of benefits for which they are eligible, with an emphasis on MassHealth and SNAP (food stamps). The grant is for one year. We expect but cannot guarantee that funding will be renewed for a second year.
The long-term goal of this Project is to set Massachusetts on a path towards integration and alignment of health and human services programs. Our short-term (two-year) goals are to increase SNAP and MassHealth enrollment and retention by persuading state officials to simplify, streamline, and combine application, redetermination, and verification processes for the two programs.
Please see the Position Description for candidate qualifications and additional information.
Application Process: To apply, please submit a cover letter referencing this position ("ASAP Project Director"), resume, and brief writing sample electronically to: Mary Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org (No phone calls please.)
The application deadline is Tuesday, September 22, 2015. We will be reviewing and interviewing candidates on a rolling basis; interested parties are encouraged to submit resumes and other requested materials expeditiously.
