Hi all,

Just wanted to share our Rhode Island Victory with you all. A bill in =
the House and Senate for 5 million dollars to produce about 100 units of =
low income housing passes and was posted in the 2002 budget year.  This =
is small but a well won victory for affordable housing in Rhode Island.

This is the first year Rhode Island has budgeted any money toward =
affordable housing production.  It took about three years of advocacy by =
a number of different groups to make them aware of the housing crisis, =
then put some funds toward producing units.

YEAH!!!

Catherine Rhodes
