RIHousing is a self-supporting, quasi-public agency created in 1973 to provide financing and resources to offer housing options to Rhode Islanders. RIHousing works to ensure that all people who live in Rhode Island can afford an attractive home that meets their needs.

By May 2025, RIHousing will adopt the new Five-Year Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan which will describe Rhode Island’s affordable housing and community development funding priorities and goals for the next five years. It will also describe how the State will plan on using its federal funds for projects in FY 2025 to address the identified high priority needs. Additionally, the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) will be completed in early 2025 and will identify barriers to housing choice for members of the protected classes. The AI will also include a fair housing action plan that identifies barriers to fair housing and a plan to address those barriers.

Public input is essential to the planning process to help shape future affordable housing and community development priorities in Rhode Island. The public meetings and pop-ups will give community members an opportunity to learn about the Consolidated Plan, the Annual Action Plan and Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing and share their thoughts on the region’s existing housing and community development needs.
