Grow Smart RI is committed to strengthening the economy, supporting access to good affordable housing and efficient transportation, reducing health and economic disparities and safeguarding natural resources in Rhode Island’s 39 cities and towns through research and analysis, policy development, thought leadership and advocacy, collaboration and the promotion of public awareness.
Grow Smart RI has won numerous awards in recognition of its work, including an Environmental Merit Award from EPA’s Region 1 Office and a Preservation Advocacy Award from Preservation Rhode Island.
