Business Assistance Coordinator Job Description
About the Anchorage Community Land Trust (ACLT):
The mission of the Anchorage Community Land Trust (ACLT) is to develop healthy and prosperous neighborhoods in Anchorage. We choose to invest our effort in neighborhood commercial corridors because we believe that community wealth building starts with strong, locally owned small businesses. We support neighborhoods such as Mountain View, Fairview and Spenard with our toolkit, which consists of real estate, community organizing, neighborhood improvements, and targeted programs. Our Set Up Shop program, which launched in 2018, provides a pipeline of training, lending, business assistance, and real estate help for entrepreneurs from our core neighborhoods. By supporting business creation, local job growth, and resident leadership, we can revitalize communities, provide economic opportunities to families, and make Anchorage an even better place to live and raise a family. For more information, see anchoragelandtrust.org.
ACLT is seeking a candidate with strong project management skills and technical expertise to support small businesses through our Indigenous Peoples Set Up Shop program.

Evening and weekend work is occasionally required. This position reports to the Director of Programs, and works alongside other program managers and program staff.
