Under general supervision, provides administrative and analytical support to assigned federal and local housing programs; analyzes programmatic policies, practices and procedures and makes recommendations for operational, policy, and procedural improvements; conducts needs analyses, feasibility studies, research, and evaluations for assigned programs; develops, summarizes, and maintains administrative records; fosters cooperative working relationships with other Housing Authority (Agency) departments, outside agencies, and the general public; and performs related work as required.
This is the journey-level class in the Housing Policy Analyst series, in which incumbents perform the full range of analytical duties in support of assigned assisted housing programs including on-going research, analysis, and reporting of housing programs regulations, preparation of comprehensive reports, policy briefs, research memos, model policies or other communications. The work has technical and programmatic aspects, requiring the interpretation and application of policies, procedures, and regulations and involving frequent contact with staff and the public, as well as performing various research functions. Employees at this level are required to be fully trained in all procedures related to the assigned area(s) of responsibility. This class is distinguished from the Senior Housing Policy Analyst in that the latter is an expert for specific Agency programs, assigned to the more complex programs and initiatives, functioning with a higher degree of independent judgment and initiative, and requiring additional training and/or experience.
