With support from the California Coalition for Rural Housing (CCRH), we are proud to announce that we are accepting applications for its 23nd Annual Rural West Internship Program for Diversity in Nonprofit Housing and Community Development.
FHDC is seeking a Housing Development Specialist Intern who will work with our Housing Development Team and partners to build, rehab, and acquire new and existing housing and community assets. Three of the main projects the intern might expect to work on includes: a 130 unit new housing development project in Lebanon, Oregon, a rehabilitation project in Independence, Oregon, and a capital campaign for the redevelopment and reimagining of Cipriano Ferrel Community Education Center in Woodburn, Oregon.
“The CCRH Internship Program is a one-year paid Internship designed to recruit, train, and retain housing development professionals who enhance inclusion and racial equity within the Affordable Housing Development field. CCRH member nonprofit organizations have responded to the need for affordable housing by building, maintaining and rehabilitating affordable housing complexes in the rural West since the 1960s. This internship is intended to provide an entry into the affordable housing and community development field to historically underrepresented college students from low-income, rural, farmworker and ethnically diverse communities representative of the growing diverse populations served by these nonprofit housing developers. We strongly encourage applications from recent college graduates or students entering their last year of college so that upon graduating from college, they may be able to be employed in entry-level professional positions in the field. All majors are welcome to apply.”
