    What is it?

    For many people, down payment and closing cost assistance can be the difference between homeownership dreams and reality. The Down Payment Assistance Program provides federal assistance for qualifying low-to moderate-income homebuyers to purchase a house located in one of the 2013 disaster-impacted neighborhoods within the City of Moore.

    All applicants must meet the following qualifications:

    1. Applicant must not exceed program’s income guidelines for their family size.
    2. Must have ability to get a 1st Mortgage through a bank or mortgage company.
    3. Home must be used as applicant’s primary residence for a five-year period following the purchase of the home.
    4. Applicant must attend a certified Homebuyer Education Workshop prior to closing.

  • The Moore Police Department has started a new program to help in solving crimes and recover stolen property. Many homes and businesses in Moore have private security cameras.  We are asking for the community's help in compiling a list of camera locations by having the owners register their system with the Moore Police Department.  This program is completely voluntary and will not cost the owner any money.  The video information can be utilized when a crime is reported in an area where we have cameras listed.  The Police Department will contact the owner and request a copy of their video footage to help develop leads in the investigation.  There would be no cost to the individual or business as the Police Department would provide the necessary equipment to download the video footage.  The information provided by the owner of the camera system will not be available to the public or subject to open records requests.
