Choctaw Nation recognizes the housing demand and increases in rental rates nationwide.
Due to the Durant Casino Expansion opening, there is a significant shortage of market-rate rental housing in Durant and rental rates and housing demands are at an all-time high.
Choctaw Nation is preparing to decrease these demands in three Choctaw communities.
Multi-family and single-family housing complexes will be available in each of these locations, and tribal members who accept positions with Choctaw Nation may be eligible to receive relocation assistance from the Human Resources Department.
Three housing complexes are coming soon. The complexes will be located in Durant, Calera and Broken Bow. The Haven, Durant location, consists of 216 units and will open in June 2024.
Rosehill Lane, Calera location, consists of approximately 176 single-family rental units. Timber View, Broken Bow location, will include 120 units and support approximately 435 new jobs at the Hochatown Resort. Each complex will have amenities, like a dog park, clubhouse and playground. Tribal members and employees of the Choctaw Nation will have preleasing priority to these units.
A groundbreaking ceremony for The Haven took place on Jan. 19.
Chief Gary Batton said, “This is about growing our economy. Making everybody’s lives better, tribal members and non-tribal members. That’s what we are all about. Our slogan says, ‘Together We Are More’ and we truly believe in that. Our council is doing an awesome job appropriating dollars so that we can make reality like today happen.”
