It's not goodbye, it's see you later! On our season finale, we chat with Director of Providence Planning's Division of Housing and Community Development, Emily Freedman.

Ever wonder what CDBG, HOME, ESG, HOPWA, and/or HUD stand for? You've come to the right place. These acronyms represent just a few of the programs and agents that help allocate funding to organizations that provide services to our low- and moderate-income community members. Emily explains these, what it means to be an "entitlement city" in terms of predictability and stability of funding, and some exciting, brand-new initiatives that will help serve our most vulnerable residents.
