About the Campaign
Fair Housing Rhode Island has formed a coordinated statewide campaign to raise awareness about State and Federal fair housing laws, bring together information and provide fair housing resources. This website is your one-stop web-based resource center for fair housing issues.
This campaign is funded by a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Fair Housing Initiatives Program Education and Outreach grant. Rhode Island Housing has partnered in this campaign with Housing Network of Rhode Island and the Rhode Island Housing Resources Commission. The Rhode Island Commission for Human Rights serves in a consultant capacity in support of the initiative.
