City of Tulsa Awarded $30 Million HUD Grant

The award of the $30 million FY2017 Implementation Grant and significant additional leverage will accelerate and achieve the community’s vision for Eugene Field’s transformation. With these resources, the housing authority, the City, and their development partner, McCormack Baron Salazar Inc. will replace 390 units of distressed public and HUD-assisted housing with 460 units of high quality mixed-income housing. The redevelopment will break up these concentrated super blocks, creating townhomes and garden style apartments with pedestrian friendly streets, greenspaces, and commercial amenities.
