Shape Rhode Island’s Housing Future: RIHousing Unveils Plan, Seeks Your Feedback

Safe, secure, and affordable housing is the foundation for a healthy and thriving community. In Rhode Island, RIHousing is taking a vital step towards this goal by holding public meetings to discuss their plan for utilizing federal funds. This plan focuses on increasing access to affordable housing options and promoting housing equity throughout the state.
