The City of Hillsboro’s Finance Team is excited to launch recruitment for the Grant Administrator, a brand-new role within the City. We are growing, and as a forward-thinking city, we want to be best positioned to serve the needs of our diverse community. As the Grant Administrator, you will have a direct impact to our community by researching and identifying grant funding opportunities available and grant funding needs. Your work will result in bringing additional infrastructure and programs to our community.
A top priority for the Grant Administrator will be identifying grant opportunities across City departments, partnering with grant managers to resource them with information and tools to manage grants effectively and compliantly, establishing a cross-departmental grants group, and organizing Citywide grant reporting. You will work directly with the Finance Manager drafting the City’s annual Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards and coordinating the Single Audit work from external auditors. If you are looking to grow and take your skills to the next level as a grant administrator, this is an ideal position.
This new opportunity will serve as the primary point of contact for grants and be responsible for managing the pre-award, post-award, and fiscal activities to support the grants.
You will support all aspects, including:
Ideally, we need someone who understands grant accounting and applies it in the course of their work, has excellent MS Excel skills and prior experience with Munis (our ERP system) would be a plus. Exceptional communication skills, both written and oral a must. Most importantly, solid experience in fully cycle grant administration (application/grant writing, submission, acceptance, execution and compliance, and recording and record keeping.)
Acceptable Experience and Training
