For more than 40 years, Rhode Island Housing has been making it easier for people to make Rhode Island their home. We do so by cultivating partnerships with organizations that share in our mission to ensure that all people who live and work in Rhode Island can afford a safe, healthy home that meets their needs.
Statement of Fair Housing Policy

To assure consistency across all programs and initiatives, the Office of Housing and Community Development and Rhode Island Housing developed the attached Statement of Fair Housing Policy. This policy must be followed when financial assistance is provided by the State of Rhode Island or Rhode Island Housing, as well as for homes to be considered affordable under the terms of the Rhode Island Low and Moderate Income Housing Act RIGL 45-53.

You can find a comprehensive tool kit that explains fair housing laws and provides guidance on how to affirmatively market affordable homes at www.FairHousingRI.org.
Working together, we leverage our resources and skills to create programs and services that provide homes that Rhode Islanders can afford to rent or buy; stimulate economic growth; protect our environment; and revitalize communities throughout Rhode Island.

Rhode Island Housing 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, Rhode Island Housing is the state‚Äôs leading resource for housing needs. 

At Rhode Island Housing, 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.
