IDA programs

The Matched College Savings Program is a unique program designed to be incorporated into other similar programs and opportunities already existing on campus. The 5:1 funding match comes from a combined source of federal and state dollars. The federal dollars come from the Assets for Independence Act (AFI) and the state dollars come from the Oregon IDA Tax Credit Initiative.

Because this program requires extensive participation by school staff, it is not the right fit for every school, however, we would love to discuss the options and requirements with you. If you are interested in becoming a member school, please contact the Family Economic Opportunity.

About the Oregon IDA Initiative

The Oregon Individual Development Account Initiative invests in the personal and financial growth of individuals to build strong communities throughout Oregon. The Initiative was created in 1999 by the Oregon State Legislature to bring state agencies, private non-profit and tribal partners, and private contributors together to create opportunity in Oregon. Today, the Initiative is composed of the State of Oregon, under the leadership of Oregon Housing and Community Services Department and the Oregon Department of Revenue, and a host of private partners and contributors working together to help Oregonians achieve their dreams. The Initiative is managed by Neighborhood Partnerships.
