The Wallace family of Taylor is presented with a check for $10,924.50 from the Lackawanna County Commissioners through the First Time Homebuyers program.  The County is helping families to secure the “American Dream” by covering part of the closing costs and down payment up to $13,500 under this initiative.  The main stipulation of the program is that the house purchased must be a first home for the program participants and it must become the primary residence of the applicant. To date, the Commissioners have helped six families purchase their first home
