Information about the IDA Program


IDA Directory


An IDA (Individual Development Account) is a special matched savings account where you get donations for saving money. Usually, you get a certain amount of money for every dollar you save yourself. These accounts help you achieve a specific goal within a certain period of time, usually one to five years. IDA programs keep you focused so you can see results.

What's the Catch?

You can only use the accounts for buying a home, paying for education or job training, starting a small business, or saving for retirement. You must go to financial literacy training classes on how to manage your money and credit and have earned income. Also, IDA programs are very competitive and are not available in every area.

    This is a great way to save!

    • Delma Alvarez

    I just signed up and caught up with all the lessons. My daughter had told me about this (she heard about it through a friend) neither had much information except that it was saving $$ in a feasible way and ANYbody could do it. I have had some health set backs and am trying to get on my feet now. I'm excited to learn more about passive income streams and love your book choices. Thanks for sharing all this great information with us.
