The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity with the vision of advancing the social determinants of health and racial equity through healthy housing. With an emphasis on black and brown communities, GHHI delivers improved health, economic and social outcomes. GHHI supports housing, environmental health, and energy efficiency services for families in communities around the country, as well as conducting direct services in Maryland. GHHI’s delivery model is based on its data-driven philosophy that public and private social investments are optimized and social program outcomes are maximized when the energy, health, and safety needs of an occupied home are addressed comprehensively, efficiently, and simultaneously. GHHI’s employees are all expected to work by the organization’s operating values of assuming good intent, operate with transparency, deliver on time with excellence, and ensure racial equity and diversity are part of all policies, practices, and actions.
GHHI seeks a smart, thoughtful, and strategic Policy Director who shares GHHI’s mission, to join the Climate, Energy & Equity Team (CEE). The CEE team works with internal and external stakeholders to coordinate GHHI’s work advancing policies and programs that support healthy, energy efficient, and carbon-free housing for all Americans, particularly residents of Black and Brown communities. The Policy Director will collaborate with the CEE team, other teams within GHHI, and external stakeholders to identify opportunities to advance holistic policies and programs at the federal, state, and local level.
