I saw Hillsboro aero academy offers to train people for their CFII and MEI if they are hired on as a CFI. I would move in a heart beat but can't afford to do so and also I have family which would be harder to move.
I am looking around my area to see there a small flight school or someone in need of CFI that might be willing to either cover all or some of the training for CFI for a two year contract.
