KISRA WVIDA Program
IDAs, or Individual Development Accounts, are special matched savings accounts designed to help families and individuals of modest means establish a pattern of regular saving and, ultimately, purchase a "productive asset." A "productive asset" is something of value that is likely to return substantial long-term benefits to its owner-- benefits like security, stability and opportunities for more income. WVIDA program participants may use their savings and match money toward the purchase of a home, small business capitalization or post-secondary education. - Learn more.
