Member Region: Northeast
The capital city in Rhode Island, Providence combines the accessibility and friendliness of a small town with the culture of a big city, including a thriving arts community, and a commitment to its vibrant and diverse neighborhoods. In 2015, Mayor Elorza created the EveryHome initiative in an effort to revitalize and fill abandoned homes in the capital city. The City utilizes a suite of tools to bring vacant and abandoned residential properties into productive reuse, including receivership.
