Welcome to East Providence, Rhode Island
 

The Waterfront Commission has been charged with facilitating the transformation of the East Providence waterfront into a model of urban revitalization.  Its work will help shape the East Providence waterfront for the next one hundred years.

Over the past ten years, we have helped bring five hundred jobs into the Waterfront District and the City.  Here's why businesses should relocate or expand in East Providence!
