Source of Income Bill: Rhode Island

Housing discrimination is still alive and well in Rhode Island. 

Currently, RI and NH are the only states in New England that allow landlords to systematically reject potential tenants if they have a housing choice voucher, or Section 8.

UNDERSTAND that the law that is trying to change that WILL NOT FORCE landlords to accept ALL Section 8. They will still be able to screen applicants just like they do with non-section 8 tenants. They will simply not be allowed to refuse people ONLY because they have a voucher.
