Sullivan, Director of the Office of Housing and Community Development said of the recognition, “Our Office was honored to be recognized by MassHousing with the Outstanding Partner Award. Lori Moring, our Deputy Director leads a great team that strives to create homeownership opportunities in New Bedford.
