"Rhode Island Housing"

Rhode Island Housing , 44 Washington Street, Providence, RI 02903, oversees the management of 20,000 apartments for low-income seniors, families, and persons with disabilities. Approximately 15,000 of these apartments are Section 8. Under this category, tenants pay 30 percent of their income for rent. The remaining 5,000 apartments have a variety of subsidies that keep the rents affordable for low-income households. Generally, residents of Section 8 apartments must earn no more than 50 percent of the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) median family income for their community and household size. Applicants can apply for housing in any community in which they would like to live. Most communities have a waiting list for these affordable housing units.
