WPRI 12: Report: There's an affordable housing crisis in RI

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A lack of affordable housing in Rhode Island is causing major issues statewide, according to a report recently released by the Commission of Health Advocacy and Equity.

The report shows there are no communities in the Ocean State that have enough low-to-moderate income housing units, with most having one unit for every five eligible households.

The lack of affordable housing is projected to get worse over time, according to Joe Luca, the former president of the Rhode Island Realtors Association.
