About the Oregon IDA Initiative

The Oregon IDA Initiative is a network of community organizations, housing authorities, schools and colleges that provide Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) all across Oregon. The Initiative is part of Oregon’s Housing and Community Services Department, and is managed by Neighborhood Partnerships.

IDAs are matched savings accounts that build the financial management skills of Oregonians with lower incomes while they save towards a defined goal. IDAs build pathways of opportunity and create models of economic success in Oregon communities. IDA Providers work directly with community members to create a savings plan, take financial education classes, open a savings account, and start saving for their goal.
