Environmental Policy Innovation Center – Posted by lslaughter Anywhere

Job Description

About EPIC

EPIC builds policies that deliver spectacular improvement in the speed and scale of environmental progress so people and nature can thrive. A national nonprofit, EPIC is committed to finding and highlighting the best approaches to scaling up results quickly. EPIC works to further environmental and public health outcomes by improving water infrastructure, restoration, procurement, endangered species, and the use of data. EPIC operates through a fiscal sponsorship with the Sand County Foundation.

Position Description

Reporting to the Funding Navigator Director, the Mid-Atlantic Manager will lead and advance EPIC’s efforts to connect utilities in overburdened, underserved municipalities with technical assistance, community engagement, and state and federal funds for infrastructure. The focus will be on municipalities in the Mid-Atlantic region, with additional work outside the region as needed. We are looking for someone with water sector experience, experience managing projects that involve teams of contractors or stakeholders; engaging with state program staff, water utility managers, municipal leaders, or environmental justice groups; building or leading diverse coalitions; or experience with infrastructure funding programs. An example of an ideal candidate might be an engineer or operator with public works experience or a project manager who has connected municipalities with public funds for capital projects.

We seek candidates who can manage EPIC’s Mid-Atlantic Funding Navigator projects within a small organizational structure and help build momentum working with engineers, state agencies, EPA, other nonprofits, and technical assistance providers.

The Manager will be based in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or Delaware and may support our work outside the Mid-Atlantic. We anticipate that this position will require travel 1-2 times per month for regional meetings, conferences, and other events and approximately 1-3 times per year nationally. Work other than travel is done at the candidate’s home office.

Salary Range

$80,000-$90,000 based on experience and qualifications.


EPIC offers an excellent benefits package that includes health, dental and vision care, 401k contributions, and four weeks of paid time off.
