Message from Director Jodie Harrishttps://www.cdfifund.gov/Lists/CDFI Director Message/AllItems.aspxhttps://www.cdfifund.gov/Lists/CDFI Director Message/DispForm.aspx?ID=32Message from Director Jodie Harris​Since my last update, I know that many of us have been dealing with a high degree of uncertainty in both our organizations and our communities. The "new normal" created by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect day-to-day life—from how to we work, to how we take care of our families, to how we interact with the world. 2020-07-29T04:00:00Z0x0100178F0095A2AE7A4FBED67E33256F670E09005004FBF960B69843845A526DE49ACC0232
