Financial Education and Matched Savings

Financial Education and Savings Program

If you are a low-moderate income family, our Family Asset Building program may be right for you.

Financial assets, such as a home, a business or a savings account, can help you weather unexpected set-backs such as a job loss, car breakdown, or if an illness strikes. 

Our Family Asset Building program offers a matched savings program - for every $1 you save we deposit $2. You can use the savings from your Individual Development Account (IDA) to buy a first home, take college courses or receive post-secondary training, or to start or expand a small business.

Who is eligible?

To qualify, you must:

  • Reside in Johnson or Wyandotte county in Kansas; or in Clay, Platte or Jackson county in Missouri.
  • Earn an income that's at or below 200% of federal poverty guidelines.
  • Have a net worth of less than $10,000 (excluding home and one vehicle).

 

To get started saving, please call 913-342-1110 ext. 1958.
