PROVIDENCE – Three nonprofit housing-assistance organizations will receive a total of $564,235 to help preserve and develop affordable rental housing and counsel struggling homeowners, Sen. Jack Reed announced last week.

The federal NeighborWorks America program is awarding federal grants to Rhode Island’s NeighborWorks affiliates in Providence and Woonsocket:

• West Elmwood Housing Development Corporation, Providence; $296,000.
