Housing & Economic Policy Associate
Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York (CCC) is a 75-year-old nonprofit, multi-issue child advocacy organization with a mission to ensure that every New York child is healthy, housed, educated and safe. Our unique approach to child advocacy is fact-based, relies on partnerships between professional staff and volunteers on CCC’s Board and Advocacy Council, and requires the ability to effectively engage elected and appointed government officials, City and State agency leaders, direct service colleagues, philanthropic partners, and New Yorkers at large.
The Housing & Economic Policy Associate will report to the Associate Executive Director for Policy and Advocacy and will be a key member of the Policy & Advocacy team.
CCC’s core policy areas include early childhood education, education and youth services; children’s health and mental health; income and housing security; child welfare and juvenile justice. The Housing & Economic Policy Associate will advise senior leadership on economic impact analyses of various child and anti-poverty polices across areas covered, with a keen focus on child poverty and barriers to mobility.
Members of the policy and advocacy team focus on three components of work: documenting the facts; community education; and advocacy. This includes analyzing policy, budget and legislative proposals; testifying at budget and legislative hearings; drafting memos of support or opposition to legislative proposals; coordinating large-scale advocacy efforts including building, leading and participating in coalitions; meeting year-round with elected and appointed government officials.
