Individual Development Account

The idea of owning a house is exciting, but sometimes that excitement fades when thinking about the cost and responsibilities associated with home ownership. It can seem overwhelming, but ICCF wants to make it easier for you.
ICCF offers Individual Development Accounts (IDA) for qualified individuals. This savings program allows potential homebuyers to increase their financial resources so they can purchase their first home. For every dollar participants save for a home, up to $1,000, the IDA program will give $3. Confused?  Think of it this way.  If a client puts $1,000 in their IDA, they will receive an additional $3,000 from the IDA program for a total of $4,000 to put towards their first home!
    $1 your savings
+ $3 IDA contribution
= $4 saved for a home!

  • Agree to deposit at least $28 into the IDA program a month
