Individual Development Account (IDA) Program
The IDA is a matched savings account that offers low-income workers the opportunity to open a matched savings account that can be used for higher education or the purchase of a first home. Participants must meet certain eligibility criteria, including having earned income, household income less than 200% of Federal Poverty limits, residing within Yuma County, and having net assets less than $10,000 (excluding one vehicle and a home). Participants must save for 6 months, during which time they will be able to attend workshops on how to purchase a home and how to develop their financial skills. Upon completing the program, participants receive a 3 to 1 match for every dollar saved.
Learn how an IDA can help you save money and reach your goal of going back to school or buying a home! Contact us at 928-217-7156 or email at: BobbiF@wacog.com.
