The San Francisco Board of Supervisors established the San Francisco Housing Authority (SFHA) in 1938. The SFHA is the oldest housing authority in California and the 17th largest in the country. The mission of the San Francisco Housing Authority is to deliver safe and decent housing for low income households and integrate economic opportunity for residents.
Reporting to the San Francisco Housing Authority Executive Director, through the Director of the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development, the Chief Financial Officer is responsible for the financial well-being of the organization by ensuring financial projections, accounting services and internal controls/compliance are provided, evaluated, and maintained. The CFO and finance team prepares growth plans, including financial projections for the Authority’s transition to a voucher administration focus, and oversees the audits and reporting processes. The incumbent also provides strategic development of finance policies, procedures and regulations for the agency; provides staff assignments; sets objectives; and monitors the performance of subordinate staff.
Requires a bachelor’s degree with a major in accounting or finance or a related field and six years of accounting or financial management experience, preferably in a public housing agency, including four years in a supervisory capacity. Experience with HUD related housing programs such as Housing Choice Voucher, Public Housing, Capital Fund and other federally funded programs is preferred. An active Certified Public Accountant (C.P.A.) certification is also highly desirable.
