Abstract: The ngVLA will obtain breakthrough observations of the cold phases (molecular and atomic) of galactic outflows. These observations will be key to study the driving mechanisms of cold winds, the fate of the gas, the mass-loss rates, the conditions that trigger cold outflows, the fraction of gas that escapes galaxies, the effects of winds on suppressing star formation and slowing black hole growth, the statistical properties of outflows, and the relation between large scale outflows and ultra-fast outflows and broad absorption line outflows. Finally, we highlight the ngVLA complementarity with existing and planned facilities, such as ALMA/SKA, OST/SPICA, and Lynx/ATHENA.
