Get Involved with North Tulsa Economic Development Initiatives

NTEDi is a non-profit organization recognized in the State of Oklahoma; an organization desiring to expand its influence in support of the low income underserved north Tulsa Community. However, in an effort to expand our ability to positively impact the community and Tulsa as a whole we found it necessary to seek non-profit 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service.

Economic Development via a public/private partnership (corporation) to ‘Rebuilding North Tulsa one project at a time’. One aspect of the program is to provide a vehicle to create, attract, retain, and expand business,which is primarily carried out through various initiatives listed below:

  • A Business and Retail initiative focused primarily on supporting and developing a vehicle to promote new retail and commercial space in north Tulsa.
  • A Housing/Homeownership initiative focused on creating a safe environment for community and Economic Development resulting in improved neighborhood housing and increased homeownership.
  • A Marketing and Communication plan to increase the awareness of Tulsa citizens, businesses, developers and investors of the potential that exists in north Tulsa. This is being accomplished via the NTEDi web site, seed money secured from donors and sponsors, members attending marketing seminars to aid in the promotion of the community.
  • Education is one of the key factors that has a significant impact in lifting the citizens of the North Tulsa Community. NTEDi is partnering with Tulsa Technology Center, Tulsa Community College, Tulsa Public Schools, Metropolitan Tulsa Urban League, and the Tulsa Metro Chamber of Commerce to enhance the educational experience for our youth and families through collaboration with Higher Education Institutions.
  • The development of the workforce in the north Tulsa Community is paramount to the success and sustainability of the area. NTEDi will partner with organizations such as the Tulsa Economic Development Corporation, Greenwood Chamber of Commerce, Workforce Tulsa, Oklahoma Department of Commerce, and the Tulsa Metro Chamber of Commerce to reduce unemployment in the region by attracting, developing, recruiting minority engineers, and other professional skilled trades.
