An Individual Development Account (IDA) is a matched savings program for refugees and asylees who have been in the country for less than five years. For every dollar saved, the program will match a dollar. Each family can save up to $4,000 to be spent to attend school, open a business, buy a home or  a vehicle (up to $1000). The IDA project is funded by the federal office of refugee resettlement.
