Programs like Tulsa’s are more than a bandaid. By moving prospective home buyers out of artificially dense and expensive areas, they allow that first home purchase, which is the most important one in that it provides a platform for the next purchase. Love living in cities but hate paying $900k for half of a duplex? Move into the heartland. Lower prices, less traffic, and lots of young and diverse people embracing small city living.

I agree with you for the most part. I think it's difficult for someone from a city who's looking to build a family though. Smaller cities bring fewer options and often a potential culture shock.
