A safe, affordable place to call home is the American dream, but one that’s out of reach for too many Rhode Islanders. Across our state, the cost of housing is rising faster than incomes leaving our workers, families, seniors, and veterans struggling to find a home or apartment they can afford, while also making ends meet.
Now, with so many Rhode Islanders struggling with the health and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, finding safe, affordable housing is more important than ever.
By investing in housing opportunities for all Rhode Islanders we can address a housing shortage that is holding our economy back. In Rhode Island’s March 2, 2021 special election, vote Yes On Question 3 to approve the $65 million Housing and Community Opportunity bond. Question 3 supports the construction and rehabilitation of affordable homes and apartments across Rhode Island, and will help communities revitalize neighborhoods through redevelopment, new construction, and property acquisition.
This smart investment will leverage millions of dollars in other resources while creating much needed housing, well-paying construction jobs, and stronger communities.
