For more than 40 years, RIHousing has been dedicated to ensuring that all people who live and work in Rhode Island can afford a safe, healthy home, and afford to keep it. Working together with concerned legislators; elected officials in cities and towns; and community and business partners throughout the state’s urban, suburban and rural areas, we have helped thousands of Rhode Island families become active, successful, contributing members of their communities.

2016 HousingWorks Housing Needs Report

This report, the first of its kind in our state, covers Rhode Island's current and future housing needs. It examines the population and demographic trends to project how the State's population will change over the next ten years, and how our housing stock will need to change and grow in response.

The picture of affordable housing has changed dramatically over the past decade. A successful development now incorporates attractive, comfortable homes with easy access to green space, retail, services and transportation... a mix that promotes successful neighborhood revitalization and a sense of community.

Now, as you and the communities you represent work to develop and implement strategies to create more affordable homes to meet the needs of constituents in your community, RIHousing can help. We not only have the knowledge and resources to support your plans but we are also committed to developing creative strategies to meet your specific needs.

RIHousing provides a wide array of safe, consumer-friendly products and services for residents in your community. We provide low-interest loans, grants, education, advocacy and consumer counseling to help Rhode Islanders rent, buy and retain their homes. We also offer special programs to ensure that these homes are safe and healthy. From our rental assistance and safe, affordable mortgages, to our partnerships with developers, RIHousing is the state’s leading resource for housing needs. 

At RIHousing, our belief is that a home encompasses much more than four walls and a roof. A good home provides the foundation upon which families can thrive, children can learn and grow, and communities can prosper. 

This website is designed to help you easily find all the information you need to help residents and constituents connect with services and programs to help the find a safe and healthy home to rent or buy that they can afford to keep as long as they want.
