TULSA, Okla. — After the derecho passed through Tulsa Saturday night, many are facing expensive cleanup and repairs to their homes.

The City of Tulsa's Working in Neighborhoods department is providing grants up to $5,000 to assist homeowners with emergency repairs, such as Weatherhead repairs.

To qualify, eligible homeowners who meet HUD's income guidelines must complete an application and return it to the City of Tulsa WIN department.

The City of Tulsa announced at Wednesday's press conference that Weatherhead permit fees are waived. Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum says the city will refund those who purchased permits prior to the announcement. Remind electricians that the permit fees are waived if they insist otherwise.

The City of Tulsa Development Services said it is ready for storm-related structure repair permits and trade permits.

These will be expedited reviews and permits issued on the same day, the city said. Inspections for the repair or individual trade will also be on the same day.

To schedule an inspection, call (918) 596-9656.
