In addition, in light of COVID-19 and its enormous effects on the communities we serve, we have also added a dedicated workstream focusing on COVID-19 and the impacts on low-income people.   Position Summary  The Director—Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning position will develop and implement CFI’s approach to monitoring, evaluation, and learning to better understand and optimize the impact of our work.
