Executive Grants Analyst

The Nevada Grant Office is seeking qualified applicants for the position of Executive Grant Analyst. This is an unclassified full-time position within Nevada State Government. This position is appointed by the administrator of the Office of Grant Procurement, Coordination, and Management (Grant Office) and serves at the pleasure of the Director.

Agency Responsibilities

Since its creation in 2011, the Nevada Grant Office has remained nimble, evolving to address the dynamic challenges facing grant-seeking organizations. Assembly Bill 445 (AB 445) of the 2021 legislative session continues this momentum by establishing the next phase of the office's evolution in its mission to bring more federal grant dollars into the state. AB 445 transitions the Nevada Grant Office from the Department of Administration to the Office of the Governor and renames it the Governor's Office of Federal Assistance, effective July 1, 2022. Objectives of the Office include, but are not limited to:

  • Identify methods for expanding opportunities for obtaining federal assistance;

  • Identify performance metrics and targets relating to obtaining and maximizing federal assistance and improving the administration of grants;

  • Identify methods for the effective administration of grants; identify specific tasks which must be performed to improve the administration of grants and maximize the amount of federal assistance received by this State and a schedule for implementing any such tasks; identify best practices for considering whether to respond to a grant opportunity, including, without limitation, the monetary and programmatic cost of implementing a grant;

  • Identify methods for streamlining process, regulatory, structural and other barriers to the acquisition of federal assistance that exist at each level of federal, state or local government;

  • Identify opportunities for reducing administrative costs associated with obtaining federal assistance; and

  • Identify opportunities for coordination between state agencies, local agencies, tribal governments and nonprofit organizations to avoid duplication and achieve common goals.

Position Description

This position reports to the administrator of the Nevada Grant Office. This is a telework position that allows for scheduled part-time access to a shared office located in Carson City or Las Vegas. In-person meetings or travel, while limited, may be required. All employees in telework positions are expected to self-manage, be available during established work hours (which can be somewhat flexible), and be productive and successful without a shared physical office environment.

The Office seeks applicants who thrive in a fast-paced, changing environment who are able to contribute to and champion the Office's transition to the Governor's Office of Federal Assistance. Candidates will contribute to and oversee legislatively mandated programs and serve as a model to the State in grant management and regulatory compliance.

Applicants must meet both the general and position-specific qualifications and must specify in their letter of interest to which position they are applying.

With minimal oversight, all Executive Grant Analysts must be able to:

  • Engage stakeholders and provide effective customer service, complaint resolution, and support through kindness, competence, and professionalism

  • Research, interpret, communicate, monitor, and apply relevant federal, state and program policy, eligibility, and requirements

  • Actively contribute toward achieving office objectives by making and articulating data- and policy-informed recommendations

  • Thoughtfully, clearly, and engagingly present information tailored to a variety of stakeholder groups such as leadership, councils, committees, legislative bodies, agencies, members of the public, etc.

  • Proactively seek out and capitalize on areas of opportunity, removing barriers, and solving problems through the application of strong research, reasoning, creative, critical thinking, and analytic abilities

  • Lead teams and hold meetings to discuss and move forward progress and deliverables based on program requirements

  • Concurrently manage multiple tasks of varying priority and independently determine a course of action to meet deadlines
