A Place to Call Home
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.
That is why HousingWorks RI believes that all Rhode Islanders, regardless of their income, deserve a safe, quality home that is affordable.
A Home for Your Budget
Whether you are an hourly wage earner, a recent college graduate, an up-and-coming entrepreneur or a retiree, you deserve a home that fits your budget. Housing is considered “affordable” when it costs no more than 30% of your gross income. For a minimum wage-earner working full time, an affordable apartment would cost no more than $468 a month. For a median-income household in RI, an affordable home would be no more than $1,421 a month. By spending up to 30 percent of your income on housing you are able to afford other necessary items like food, health care, transportation, and childcare.
