Title: Program Manager, Food Access Initiatives
Report to: Director, Community Development
Location: Fort Greene & Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, NY
Position Available: mid-late May 2010

Application Deadline: April 19, 2010

The Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project Local Development Corporation (MARP) is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization incorporated in January 1999, founded with the mission to restore the “Main Street” of the Fort Greene and Clinton Hill community to a bustling, economically vital neighborhood commercial corridor that provides entrepreneurial, cultural, recreational, and employment opportunities for all those who live, work, study or have an interest in the area. On the economic development side, MARP serves a diverse community of approximately 150 merchants, with 97% of businesses locally-owned and 78% minority or woman-owned. Of the 30,000+ residents in the community, roughly 8,500 residents live in the Whitman and Ingersoll public housing developments, which front Myrtle Avenue. Attracting new small businesses, improving the mix of retail goods and services, and fostering job creation on the avenue helps to alleviate the separation of the middle income “brownstoners” from lower-income neighborhood residents and creates a safer and more thriving commercial district. MARP oversees programs in community-based planning, small business assistance and recruitment, historic preservation, environmental stewardship and greening initiatives, financial assistance for building rehabilitation, and other initiatives that seek to improve overall quality of life.
