The Bethel family of Dunmore is presented with a check for $9,450 from the Lackawanna County Commissioners through the First Time Homebuyers program. The County is helping families to secure the “American Dream” by covering a 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.
