The IDA program is a four-year savings plan intended to help families with limited income to develop a budget, set goals, establish savings habits and invest money in an asset.

Some of the requirements of the program are that you must be a resident of Indiana, have earned income and are able to put a small amount into the program on a monthly basis.

For each dollar saved, up to $300 a year, the program will match it with three dollars. This means, if you successfully save $300, then the program will match it with $900, totaling a combined savings of $1,200.

If you complete the four-year program at the current rate of match, you would have approximately $4,800.00 to invest in an asset (business, education, homeownership).

Am I eligible? 

Yes, if you are:

• Employed – part or full-time
• An Indiana Resident
• Below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines based on household size (see chart below)
• Able to save a minimum of $25 per month
