The Tulsa Housing Authority (THA) and the City of Tulsa have been awarded a $50 million Choice Neighborhoods Initiative (CNI) grant from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) for the Envision Comanche plan!
HUD’s Choice Neighborhoods program helps communities transform neighborhoods by revitalizing severely distressed public and/or assisted housing and catalyzing critical improvements in the neighborhood, including vacant property, housing, businesses, services and schools.
With THA as lead applicant and the City of Tulsa as co-applicant for the CNI grant, the Envision Comanche implementation team includes the City of Tulsa as Neighborhood Lead, Tulsa Public Schools as Education Lead, Urban Strategies, Inc. as People Lead and Pennrose as Housing Lead.
In addition to the redevelopment of Comanche Park Apartments, Envision Comanche calls for the addition of a neighborhood-scale grocery store, an urban farm, the creation of the Flat Rock Creek Urban Wilderness Area and the leveraging of more than $162 million in planned in private development in the area over the next several years.
