But in recent years the program has faced questions about its effectiveness and how it is funded. With a planned kickoff in a little more than three weeks, we speak to Courtney Snowden, deputy mayor for greater economic opportunity, about the role of the program — now named after founder Marion S. Barry — and how her office is addressing concerns about the program.
