CSC is pleased to partner with the Housing Authority of the City of Tulsa on a new, six-year project to revitalize and redevelop the Riverview Park and Brightwaters housing developments and surrounding Eugene Field neighborhood, thanks to a $30 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The grant, awarded to the Housing Authority in July 2018, is called the Choice Neighborhoods Grant and will be led the Tulsa Housing Authority, the City of Tulsa and Urban Strategies. The grant’s transformation plan to revitalize the Eugene Field neighborhood includes the implementation of mixed-income housing while providing economic, educational, health and other opportunities for residents. CSC will work with the team to provide quality leadership, support and needed programming to the Eugene Field community to support the transformation plan.
Specifically, CSC will provide an array of programming for neighborhood residents – both new and existing services – including 211 crisis support and referral services, housing and homelessness support, consultation to area schools, family/community outreach events, and case/care management services. To do this, CSC will deploy our 211 Information and Referral, Oklahoma 360 Degree Connection Center and Mobile Outreach, Housing and Homelessness Coordinated Entry System, Tulsa Alternative Courts, Center for Community School Strategies, Power of Families Promotoras Project, Oklahoma Veteran Connections, Services and Supports for Veterans and their Families, Maternal and Child Health Services, and Fatherhood Initiative for the duration of the Choice Neighborhoods grant period. CSC will be especially focused on aspects of the project that address expanding opportunities for preventative health and wellness, developing a seamless way for residents to connect to workforce development and educational options, and increasing opportunities for parents to be involved in their children’s education.
