What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation’s leading voice on mental health. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
Today, we are an alliance of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and a national office who work in communities across the United States to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need. NAMI advocates for all who are affected by mental illness, both the individuals and the people in their lives. In particular, we work to address disparities and injustices and to promote dignity and inclusion for all people with mental illness and their families. In addition to being advocates, we educate, we listen, and we lead as evidenced by our public awareness campaigns, the range of numerous programs we provide, and our strong public policy.
We currently have an opening for a Senior Grants Manager. The Senior Grants Manager will work with the Strategic Alliances and Development (SA&D) team to manage the submission, tracking and fulfillment of NAMI’s portfolio of grants. This includes working across teams to develop and write grant proposals and reports for strategic initiatives, as well as coordinating with program teams and finance team leadership to track grant-funded projects, ensure funds are being spent and deliverables are on target for completion.
This position can be remote or based in Arlington, VA (currently remote due to COVID).
