An Individual Development Account (IDA) is a matched savings account that enables families to save towards the purchase of a home. ICCF offers these accounts to qualified individuals (based on availability at time of inquiry). Once a participant has saved $1,000 in their IDA, their savings is matched at a four-to-one rate, giving them $5,000 total towards the purchase of a home.
The ICCF IDA Program is for individuals or families who meet the following criteria:
- Resident of Kent County
- Be able to save a minimum of $20 per month from earned income
- Has completed or will complete ICCF’s Introduction to Homeownership class before closing on a home
- Are able to save in the IDA program for at least 6 months
- Potential participants must fall at or below 100% of Area Median Income (see income limits below)
