ONE Neighborhood Builders is an active member of the Homes RI coalition and has worked with Homes RI and other members of the coalition to develop the $500 million request for how the State should invest in housing initiatives with American Rescue Plan Act funds.
An excerpt from The Providence Journal, Jan. 23, 2022:
Homes RI, a coalition led by nonprofit housing developers, had suggested half a billion dollars for affordable housing in the budget and said in a statement it was “pleased” by McKee’s plan.
However, the group asked state lawmakers, who will ultimately decide what is spent, “to consider fully funding our collective recommended investments.”
“We ask state leaders to also think about long-term, sustained investments in housing that will be necessary for the prosperity of the State in decades to come — especially for Rhode Islanders with the lowest incomes,” Homes RI said in a comunicado de prensa.
