WANTED: Public housing agency is hiring an Executive Director for the Capitol Hill Ecodistrict in Seattle, Washington

Since 1976, Capitol Hill Housing (CHH) has worked alongside the community to build and preserve housing affordable to working families and promote the qualities that make Seattle a vibrant and engaged city.

Today, we provide secure, affordable homes to over 2,200 of our neighbors across the city while working to make our neighborhoods safer, healthier and more equitable. We are a top performing, high-capacity not-for-profit corporation with an innovative portfolio of 49 buildings throughout the Seattle area. Our buildings have won numerous awards from HUD, Urban Land Institute, Affordable Housing Finance Magazine, Future wise and other community development awards.

The Capitol Hill Ecodistrict is an award-winning neighborhood-based sustainability initiative serving a beloved Seattle community in the most densely populated urban village in the Pacific Northwest. It is led by Capitol Hill Housing, a community development corporation and public development authority with over four decades of experience working alongside over a dozen Capitol Hill neighborhood groups to enhance community health, culture, and affordability.

We are intentional in our hiring processes, seeing it as a chance to interrupt the cycle of racial and economic injustice that limits communities from accessing employment, building skills and investing in their own leadership development. We prioritize applicants who have firsthand experience in navigating the many systems that our residents face which impede their opportunities for success, as majority low-income, LGBTQ, and people of color.

Reporting to the CEO of Capitol Hill Housing, the Executive Director will be responsible for prioritizing a plan for self-sufficiency, as well as for directing the development, implementation, monitoring, and improvement of local policies, programs, and initiatives that promote local environmental, economic, and social sustainability. This position also includes business development/fundraising, communications, engagement, and other duties as needed.

Capitol Hill Housing offers employees working 30 hours or more per week a very competitive package of benefits:

  • Full medical, dental and vision coverage for the employee at no charge;
  • Short-term disability;
  • Long-term disability;
  • 11 paid holidays;
  • Transit benefits;
  • Sick leave;
  • 22 days of PTO in the first year and 2 personal days annually;
  • Medical and dependent care flexible spending plans; and
