A team made up of state and federal officials and housing and community partners launched this week a statewide landlord challenge effort to provide permanent housing for Rhode Islanders who have been experiencing homelessness and staying in hotel shelters since the onset of the pandemic.
“Over 150 Rhode Island households will soon be transitioning out of hotel shelters and seeking available rental housing,” said Governor Dan McKee in a release. “The rental market is tight and the need is urgent. We are calling on landlords across the state to step forward to provide housing to keep Rhode Islanders safely housed.”
