POST FALLS, IDAHO - Four miles east of the Washington-Idaho state line, eight miles west of Coeur d'Alene and in an area of "mountains and lush farmland," its Chamber of Commerce beams, with "30 golf courses, the North Idaho Centennial Trail, 3 state parks, 55 lakes" and three ski resorts, Post Falls, Idaho is a little bit of paradise waiting to be discovered.

Providence, RI

Three entitlement communities and the state of Rhode Island have come together to create a unique partnership for the administration of their HPRP funds. By combining their resources, they have created an efficient and well-organized state-wide network.
