About the Opportunity

This is an excellent opportunity for a detail-oriented and highly organized grants professional with strong writing skills. The ideal candidate brings substantial experience managing federal grants, a commitment to professional excellence, and an interest in working within a dynamic and high-performing mission-driven organization.

This position is responsible for managing Building Futures’ grants, including performing subrecipient monitoring and engaging in compliance and outcome reporting. The Grants Manager will also engage in development activities, including researching and applying for grants. This is a key position on Building Futures’ management team reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, with a starting salary range of $70,000-85,000 (commensurate with experience) and opportunities to advance.


About Building Futures

Building Futures was founded in 2007 as a construction industry partnership focused on leveraging the registered apprenticeship model of workforce development. For over 100 years, unions and employers have jointly operated quality registered apprenticeships in construction occupations to train individuals as highly skilled tradespeople. Our work spans three distinct but highly aligned areas.

For the benefit of low-income Rhode Islanders, Building Futures developed and operates a comprehensive pre-apprenticeship program to prepare diverse, low-income men and women for success in employment as registered apprentices in the building trades. In addition, we work in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders to ensure construction projects provide employment opportunities for apprentices at the appropriate level to meet future demand for skilled labor through our Apprentice Utilization Program. Together, our pre-apprenticeship and apprentice utilization programs provide an effective system for workforce development in Rhode Island’s construction sector.


From this foundation, we have established Apprenticeship Rhode Island, an initiative to expand the use of Registered Apprenticeship beyond the construction sector. Now, we are helping develop new registered apprenticeship programs in multiple sectors, including healthcare, information technology, advanced manufacturing, and marine trades. Working with employers, industry partnerships, government, and community-based organizations, we are spreading the proven Registered Apprenticeship model to benefit the state’s workforce and economy.

Building Futures has an annual budget of $4.4 million and a staff of 23, and is slated to expand in the coming year.
