Tulsa: Eugene Fields

The Housing Authority of the City of Tulsa and the City of Tulsa has been awarded a $30 million FY2017 Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant for the Eugene Field Neighborhood. While located in a potentially desirable area, isolating physical barriers, years of disinvestment and an over-concentration of distressed, subsidized housing have hindered the neighborhood’s possibilities. Despite these obstacles, the Housing Authority of the City of Tulsa, the City of Tulsa, and the community used an FY 2010 Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant to create a collective vision that has begun to transform their neighborhood. The Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant and significant private and public leverage will accelerate their progress. With these resources, Tulsa will replace the distressed River Park Apartments and Brightwater Apartments with high-quality mixed-income housing; dramatically improve children’s educational outcomes, open new employment opportunities, and increase health care access; and implement catalytic neighborhood improvements that will build upon Eugene Field’s assets.
