Retail Revitalization Revolving Loan Fund

On the Road to Prosperity

In 2018, the City of Tulsa commissioned a study to assess the City’s commercial centers given the changing nature of retail and consumer behavior at the time. The findings of that study were the foundation of several programs that were created by the City of Tulsa and PartnerTulsa to encourage the development of neighborhood commercial centers, particularly those in key commercial corridors.

The Retail Revitalization Revolving Loan Fund is a flexible loan program for small businesses and property developers looking to expand in key commercial corridors throughout the city. The program is managed in partnership with the Tulsa Economic Development Corporation (TEDC).
