Housing

 The HOME (HOME Investment Partnerships Program), within the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) application, provides grants to fund a wide range of activities including buying and/or rehabilitating housing for rent or homeownership exclusively for low income households.  The City of Woonsocket is awarded funding by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to reinforce important values and principles of community development by providing safe and affordable housing.  The Housing and Community Development Division ensures the proper administration of these funds.

*Please note, the HOME program is not designed to assist residents with housing placement.

Equal Housing Opportunity

The City of Woonsocket adheres to the Federal Fair Housing Law and the Rhode Island Fair Housing Practices Act. For more information on Fair Housing, visit HUD's Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity website.
