Application

If you meet the eligibility requirements listed above, the next step is to complete an application.

We ask that you please submit your application in the English language to ensure the accurate and timely review of our application, which we will strive to review within four weeks of submission.

Interview

If you are selected for the next round of reviews, you’ll be invited to a 30-minute virtual interview with a member of the Tulsa Remote staff. Please note that interviews will be conducted in the English language.  

We look forward to learning more about you and your interest in Tulsa. During the interview, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the program, the Tulsa Remote community, and our wonderful city.

Program Decision

Within two weeks of your interview, you’ll receive an update on your application status. If you are selected to move forward at this stage, you’ll be required to complete a background check and income verification before we continue the process. This can take up to three weeks from the time you initiate your background check.

Moving and Receiving Your Grant

Once you’re approved, there is a 12-month window to move to Tulsa. When you’re settled, we’ll work with you to (1) verify you’ve signed a qualifying lease or purchased a qualifying home, and (2) ensure you’ve attended a new member orientation.

After that, you’ll be eligible to start receiving grant money.
