Position Description

Reinvestment Fund is a 30-year-old community development finance institution whose mission is environmentally responsible development. The Policy Solutions group in Reinvestment Fund assesses the impact of the organization’s own investments, and conducts rigorous and objective analyses to help public and nonprofit sector clients make data-informed community development decisions. The Policy Analyst will provide essential analytic and organizational support on mixed-method research projects. This is a new position driven by our recent launch of a multiyear effort to produce a body of applied research on rental evictions in Philadelphia. This project, which will be the analyst’s main focus, will involve qualitative and quantitative data collection and analyses. Reinvestment Fund will work closely with policymakers and practitioners, using the results to design data-driven changes in law, policy, resources, programs, and practices expected to mitigate the many ways evictions impact people, communities, businesses, schools, and other institutions.
