The Tulsa Housing Authority is waiving rent for its residents during the month of May in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

THA says it waived rent for its residents in April and waived late fees in March.

The rent waiver applies to people living in Apache Manor, Comanche Park, East Central Village, Hewgley Terrace, Inhofe Plaza, LaFortune Tower, The Meadows, Mohawk Manor, Murdock Villa, Parkview Terrace, Pioneer Plaza, Riverview Park, Sandy Park, Seminole Hills/Whitlow, South Haven Manor, Scattered Sites and Towne Square.

“Our residents include some of Tulsa’s most vulnerable, and as is often the case, they are disproportionately impacted by challenging times like the ones we’re facing,” said Aaron Darden, THA president and CEO. “Our hope is that through waiving rent for the months of April and May, our residents are able to funnel their financial resources to other pressing needs.”

The waiver does not apply for housing choice vouchers or Section 8 participants, because THA does not own these private properties.
