Want to know what to look for when approaching a bank or credit union as a partner for your Individual Development Account (IDA) program? Join us for this webinar and learn how to create strong partnerships (and strengthen existing ones) with financial institutions.  We’ll also provide an overview of the Community Reinvestment Act, how it affects banks’ investment in the community, and how you can leverage it to develop effective IDA collaborations.

  • Account features that are needed or desirable for IDA programs
  • Internal processes that must be developed and in place in a financial institution to offer IDAs
  • How to develop agreements and accountability systems to promote effective partnerships with financial institutions
  • Unique features of bank and credit union partnerships with IDA programs
