The program officer will provide technical support and build relationships that enable effective implementation of MHCF programs. In addition, the program officer will manage a grantee portfolio and work closely with colleagues on other Foundation focus areas.
The ideal candidate brings a willingness to work closely with Foundation colleagues and the intellectual agility to contribute to the full range of related issues the Foundation is addressing.
