Director, Regional Operations

Erin McGrath was named the first director of the Office of Regional Operations in April 2019. She leads the planning, development, delivery, and evaluation of AmeriCorps programs through a regional model, while working to maintain strong bonds with local community partnerships.

McGrath transitioned into her new role after serving as the deputy director of AmeriCorps Seniors and the state program director of the New Jersey State Office. McGrath’s journey with national service began in 1998 when she joined AmeriCorps, and subsequently developed a strong working knowledge of AmeriCorps programs through her experience as an AmeriCorps VISTA supervisor, an AmeriCorps State Formula program manager, and a program director of an AmeriCorps National Direct program.

McGrath has a master’s degree in urban affairs and public policy from the University of Delaware. She lives in Washington, D.C., but returns to New Jersey when she can because she loves her nieces, nephew, and Bruce Springsteen.
