LSLR Financing Case Study: North Providence, RI

Funding source: HUD Community Development Block Grant""

In 2017, North Providence with the leadership of Mayor Charles A. Lombardi received Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from HUD to replace privately-owned lead service lines.

As a matter of policy, for every privately-owned line replaced, Providence Water Board will replace the public side. Providence Water Board also provides outreach materials to residents and technical assistance including water testing.
