PBN: Five Questions With: Bob DaSilva
By Mary MacDonald- November 13, 2019 10:30 pm
The city of East Providence is recognizing both veterans and the high cost of housing and has made available an affordable rental house for one family or individual. The “affordable home lottery” involves a property at 47 Payette St., a centrally located one-bedroom house, which is newly renovated.
Prospective applicants can look at the property at an open house on Nov. 20, from 5 to 7 p.m. Submissions for lottery consideration must be made by 4 p.m. Dec. 10. Visit the city's website at www.eastprovidence.com for more details. In a question and response with the PBN, Mayor Bob DaSilva explained how the program works.
PBN: Is this program for only one house or is the intention to start a program that would include more houses in the future?
DASILVA: Should the city of East Providence come into possession of a home in the future that is suitable for this lottery, we'd certainly do it again.
