KeepSpace Communities Initiative
Rhode Island Housing is seeking proposals for up to five models of KeepSpace Communities that increase the supply of affordable homes, are ecologically based and economically sound, and promote alternative transportation and energy and water resources conservation. The funded developments will serve as models for future projects. The initiative is designed to encourage partnerships among developers, government agencies, nonprofits, and funders in creating affordable and economically sustainable communities throughout Rhode Island.
