IDA Program Administrator Application Now Available

Since 1997, Indiana’s Individual Development Account (IDA) program has assisted low to moderate income Hoosiers with the purchase of qualified assets such as: purchasing a home, obtaining higher education or job training, and starting or expanding a small business. In 2016, owner-occupied repair and motor vehicle purchase were added as qualified asset purchases to expand the impact of the program.

Participants in the IDA Program are eligible to receive up to $4,000 in state and federal match funds to use towards an eligible asset purchase. Participants also receive one-on-one counseling/coaching and over 8 hours of financial education covering topics such as budgeting, savings, credit, banking, taxes, and other money management strategies.

Each year, IHCDA awards funding to eligible non-profits, Community Action Agencies and Community Development Corporations across the State of Indiana to administer the IDA Program and these accounts. Currently, IDA014FT is available using PY2016 program guidelines. This is a fast track application for participants who can complete the IDA program with 18 months

The application for funding will close at 5PM EST on Monday, January 8, 2018.
