6 Questions with 6 HUD Executives, Ep. 2: Deputy Secretary Pam Patenaude

On the ground with disaster recovery

That role falls mainly on the shoulders of HUD Deputy Secretary Pamela Hughes Patenaude. In this, the second episode of our exclusive podcast series, 6 Questions with 6 HUD Executives, Editor-in-Chief Jacob Gaffney speaks with Patenaude about disaster recovery, the impact of the opioid epidemic and the interconnected nature of the nation's housing policy.
