TULSA, Okla. — Thursday, Mayor G.T. Bynum announced a new strategy to improve affordable housing.

He says data shows a rise in homelessness in Tulsa, and we rank 11th in the nation with eviction rates.

Oklahoma has 59.6 Evictions per day. Tulsa County has 19.37 evictions per day.

Bynum says he realizes there is a problem and wants to address it in a comprehensive way.

“Housing affordability, reducing eviction rates and reducing homelessness in Tulsa,” Bynum said.

They hope to build a website with resources here listed in case a Tulsa resident is in need.

The website currently lists the strategies for affordable housing, downtown Tulsa housing demand study, and strategy, along with a plan to reduce evictions.

When up and running, this website will list resources for Housing education, Non-profit organizations willing to help with individual needs, and resources, including contacts.
