Tulsa Remote is now offering new participants $10,000 toward the purchase of a home.
This is being offered to attract more new participants to the city and to stay in Tulsa, officials said.
Officials explained how new participants qualify for the $10,000.
To receive the full cash grant towards a home purchase, accepted members must purchase an owner-occupied residential property in Tulsa and will receive a single lump-sum upon the completion of the home purchase. Tulsa Remote also offers virtual and in person visits for members to get acquainted with neighborhoods, amenities and locations that will fit their lifestyle, including a $500 travel reimbursement. Airbnb is also partnering with Tulsa Remote to help members “try before they buy” with a $150 Airbnb coupon for a stay in the Tulsa neighborhood of their choice.
“This new program makes home ownership more attainable for many program applicants,” said Sofia Noshay with Tulsa Remote.
Officials said "to be eligible for the Tulsa Remote program, individuals must be a permanent resident of the United States, show consistent income, be at least 18 years of age, currently live outside of Oklahoma with the ability to work remotely and commit to moving to and living in Tulsa for at least one year."
