RIPR: Affordable Housing Advocates: Grants Help, But Need Persists

OCT 17, 2017

Woonsocket and East Providence will receive nearly $2.4 million in federal grants to help revitalize local neighborhoods and increase affordable housing. The grants were announced on Sunday by Rhode Island's U.S. senators, Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse.

Woonsocket is slated to receive the bulk of the money: more than $1.2 million from the Community Development Block Grant program. East Providence will receive nearly $700,000.

The grants come on the heels of a report that shows the availability of affordable housing remains a chronic problem in Rhode Island, and it may be getting worse, at least by some measures.
