The ACHP is now recruiting for three permitting-related positions. These are full-time, temporary positions, with an initial 13-month term subject to further extension based on continuing funding. They are all remote work eligible.

These positions are funded by the Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council (Permitting Council), a federal agency charged with improving the transparency and predictability of the federal environmental review and authorization process for certain infrastructure projects. The Permitting Council coordinates federal environmental reviews and authorizations for projects that seek and obtain coverage under Title 41 of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST-41). The Permitting Council is funding eight ACHP positions, with five of them already in the process of being filled. These eight positions will play an important role in enhancing federal permitting and helping fulfill the White House's infrastructure plans.
