Invest in your future.    

  Leaner Riggins participated in a pilot IDA program with WWBIC, Wisconsin Medicaid Infrastructure Grant (MIG), Wisconsin-Stout Vocational Rehabilitation Institute (SVRI) and Assets for Independence that worked to improve the financial stability of individuals with disabilities.

Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) are matched savings accounts that enable low-income   American families to save, build assets, and enter the financial mainstream. IDAs reward the monthly savings of working families who are building towards purchasing an asset.

WWBIC's IDA program allows individuals to save for four types of assets: purchasing your first home, paying for post-secondary education (college), starting or expanding your small business, or saving for your dependent’s college education. IDAs make it possible for eligible low-income families to build the financial assets they need to achieve the American Dream.

NOTE: The IDA program is currently only available for residents of the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (certain Section 8 or public housing residents).  Visit our FAQ for more information.
