Community Development/Management Analyst I (Grants Coordinator): This is a journey-level class in the Analyst series and is distinguished from the advanced journey level class by the performance of the more routine tasks and duties assigned to positions within the series. Employees at this level are not expected to perform with the same independence of direction and judgment of matters allocated to the advanced journey level. As knowledge and work becomes broader in scope, assignments are more varied and are performed under more general direction. This class is alternately staffed with Community Development/Management Analyst II (Grants Manager) and incumbents may advance to the higher-level class after gaining the knowledge, skills, and expertise that meet the qualifications for and demonstrating the ability to perform the work of the higher-level class.

Community Development/Management Analyst II (Grants Manager): This is an advanced journey-level class in the Analyst series responsible for performing a broad range of grants management activities. The duties performed require considerable discretion and latitude of judgment in the administration and implementation of grants activities, including development of grants procedures. The incumbent may exercise lead direction to Departmental and other City staff on grants activities.
