Guide to Rhode Island CommunitiesHousing Choice Voucher Program
How and where we live are two of the most important factors behind many of life’s outcomes. Research shows that access to a healthy, affordable home significantly impacts economic stability, employment, overall health, and educational achievement. Wherever we are in life, a place to call home is paramount to our well-being and often the source of lifelong memories. From childhood celebrations to the thrill of our first apartment or home to empty-nesting and beyond, home is a part of who we are.
As a RIHousing Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) holder, you have the ability to choose a rental home in one of 20 Rhode Island communities. We have created this guide to provide you with an overview of living in any of those communities. With a Housing Choice Voucher, you are required to pay 30-40% of your income towards rent. RIHousing will pay the balance of the rental payment directly to your landlord.
