TULSA SAVE THE DATE – Exploring Oklahoma’s Housing Needs

The Oklahoma Coalition for Affordable Housing, in partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, will host a Regional Housing Forum in Tulsa on Thursday, June 16 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at Northeastern State University Broken Arrow*. The morning session, 10:00 to noon, will focus on housing needs in the Tulsa MSA Counties (Creek, Okmulgee, Osage, Pawnee, Rogers, Tulsa and Wagoner). The afternoon session, 1:00 to 4:00, will address the housing needs in the remaining northeastern Oklahoma counties (Adair, Cherokee, Craig, Delaware, Kay, Mayes, McIntosh, Muskogee, Noble, Nowata, Okfuskee, Ottawa, Payne and Sequoyah.) Lunch will be served between the two sessions.

This event is one of a series of forums to be held across the State focusing on the recently released Oklahoma Statewide Housing Needs Assessment. This statewide study, conducted in 2015, analyzes by county the affordable housing needs for moderate to low-income households, and addresses community issues such as fair housing, lead based paint and disaster resiliency. Results of the study provide municipalities, housing developers, and nonprofit agencies with projected affordable housing demand for moderate to extremely low-income households, disaster preparation considerations, and fair housing key findings and recommendations.
