About the Job

The Vermont Community Foundation and the Vermont Disaster Recovery Fund (VDRF)—a nonprofit originally established in 2011 created in response to Tropical Storm Irene—have joined forces again to help individuals and families whose homes were damaged or destroyed by the flooding in July-August 2023. To structure long-term recovery efforts, Vermont has developed a hub-and-spokes system for individual disaster assistance. The Allocations Director is at the center of these efforts and plays a key role in helping to champion and coordinate a high-touch, people-first customized solution for affected individuals working with local and regional recovery groups, as well as locally based case managers to coordinate the funds needed to repair or rebuild survivors’ homes. The Allocations Director serves as a key resource for the recovery groups and case managers in analyzing cases, identifying potential monetary and non-monetary resources, and, when all other funding sources have been exhausted, assisting in the application for funds from the VDRF.

This is a full-time, time-limited 12-month position, with an option for extension. This position is hybrid with access to VCF offices in Burlington and Middlebury. Ability to attend regular meetings in person with the VDRF board and with VCF colleagues is required.

If this sounds like a good fit for you, please review the complete job description and send your resume and a cover letter to Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
