BRT Development Fee Reimbursement Program

Description

The Development Fee Reimbursement Program is intended to offset the costs of opening a brick and mortar business along the City of Tulsa’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes. The fees associated with opening a business are frequently overlooked when opening a business and can influence a business’ success. This program can reimburse up to $2,500 in eligible fees.

Steps 

  1. If you have started a business after January 1, 2019, view the map of Tulsa’s BRT network at tulsaplanning.org/docs/PeoriaBRTMap.pdf to determine if your business is eligible.

  2. Determine if fees you paid are eligible for reimbursement by checking in Title 49 of the City of Tulsa Municipal Code. You are allowed reimbursement up to $2,500. If you are planning for your project, identify which fees will be eligible for reimbursement and make sure to keep documentation of payment.

  3. Contact the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development to apply for the program.

  4. After your application is received, it will be reviewed and, if approved, payment will be disbursed.
