UWRI: Facebook LIVE event on Thursday, May 7

During the COVID pandemic, the correlation between housing and healthcare has only been heightened.

The crisis has resulted in nearly 200,000 unemployment claims and stopped the state’s economy in its tracks.

Proposed housing investments outlined in the Governor’s State of the State earlier this year are more important than ever.

Investments in housing construction will create good-paying construction jobs and increase housing stock across Rhode Island so more people can access safe, affordable housing.
