Housing Opportunity Partnership

The Housing Opportunity Partnership is a program launched by the City of Tulsa to address more than 300 vacant, abandoned, and uninhabitable properties that are in such disrepair they constitute a public nuisance and are eligible for demolition.

If you are a community development housing organization, nonprofit, developer, realtor, or property owner interested in transforming uninhabitable structures into safe, decent housing or you want to build new housing for Tulsans, please click the link below for a copy of the demolition property case list.

Note: The City is not acquiring these properties. We’re ensuring structures that lead to neighborhood instability are addressed.
