We are seeking applicants for a Housing Programs Supervisor to plan, schedule, assign, and review the work of support staff assigned to rental assistance and affordable housing programs within the Housing Department of the Santa Clara County Housing Authority (Agency), including case management, eligibility determination, and other technical and program support functions; ensures effective program administration and technical compliance with all applicable Federal, State, local, Agency, and program regulations, policies, procedures, and requirements; fosters cooperative working relationships among Agency departments and acts as a liaison with various community, public, and regulatory agencies; and performs related work as required.


This is the full supervisory-level class in the housing programs series. Incumbents are responsible for planning, organizing, supervising, reviewing, and evaluating the work of assigned staff.  Performance of the work requires the use of considerable independence, initiative, and discretion within established guidelines.
