Public Input Sought For Tulsa's 5-Year HUD Grant Plan

Helping Tulsa's less fortunate; the City of Tulsa wants to know where the greatest needs lie.

They're teaming up with HUD, hosting a series of meetings this week, like the one at Rudisill Regional Library Monday night.

The goal is to get public feedback on poverty, education, the homeless, housing and transportation.

HUD wants to know where the greatest need will be for the next five years.

Once those needs are prioritized, HUD will determine how the grant money is distributed throughout the community.

City Councilor Jack Henderson says, "My job is just to make sure that we stay on target, and that the concerns of this community are going to be addressed in that five year package."

There's another meeting Tuesday night at 5pm. It's at Saint Thomas More Catholic Church near 31st and 129th E. Ave.

And a third meeting is Wednesday at Zarrow Library near 51st and Union.
