Mayor Bynum Proclaims April 5-9 Community Development Week in Tulsa

4/5/2021

As part of National Community Development Week, Mayor Bynum has proclaimed April 5 – 9, 2021, as National Community Development Week in the City of Tulsa.

The City of Tulsa is pleased to recognize the many programs and agencies that have made a tremendous impact in the Tulsa community with the support of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funding.

Local development activities, such as affordable housing, home rehabilitations, demolitions, anti-poverty programs, youth programming, job training and other social service programs have been established in the Tulsa community from Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program, Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) funding.

“Because of HUD’s support and the incredible efforts our Grants Administration team has made, numerous programs and partners across Tulsa are making significant strides in successfully helping our fellow Tulsans, while positively impacting our local economy,” Mayor Bynum said. “Through our combined efforts in the midst of a challenging year, we are continuing to invest in early childhood education, contributing to neighborhood stabilization, and incentivizing economic growth.”

Over the past 5 years, more than $33 million dollars in CDBG and HOME funds have been used to improve the quality of life for nearly 185,000 Tulsans through projects related to public facilities, infrastructure, housing, job training and youth programs.

Some of the latest projects and initiatives to utilize HUD funding include:
