Tulsa, OK – The Genesis Initiative will help faith-based and community grassroots organizations to build their capacity to develop and implement affordable housing development models, and effective homeownership and financial literacy programs. The Urban League and Freddie Mac will provide an opportunity for churches, other faith-based entities and community development organizations to strengthen their understanding of new and existing economic development strategies, affordable housing development, successful homeownership counseling, education, financial self-sufficiency counseling and develop joint collaborative strategies.
Through this new initiative, the Metropolitan Tulsa Urban League, an affiliate of the National Urban League, will ask faith-based organizations to submit the proposals. Based on the analysis of the proposals, the Mayor, Urban League, HUD and Freddie Mac will announce the recipient of a $15,000 grant during the Faith Based Empowerment and Training Conference, February 25-26 at OSU-Tulsa.
F.R.E.E.D.O.M., a faith-based non-profit community development corporation that designs and implements development projects across the country, is providing oversight and technical assistance to present the charter conference for this event and judging the proposals.
