Just Home Project

The Just Home Project is a national initiative launched by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and Urban Institute designed to advance community-driven efforts to break the link between housing instability and jail incarceration.

This initiative includes an initial grant of nearly $370,000 from the MacArthur Foundation to create a plan to address the impact of incarceration on housing instability in Tulsa, along with technical assistance and coordination provided by the Urban Institute.

Tulsa and the three other communities awarded this grant will have the opportunity to receive additional support from a pool of $15 million to implement plans and acquire or develop housing for populations that are not being served by current housing resources.

By coupling grant funding with investment capital, this project seeks to unlock local government innovation, absorb risk that housing providers are hesitant to take, and provide much-needed support for people in danger of remaining trapped in a cycle of housing instability and jail.
