Assets for Independence (AFI) Resource Center and Credit Builders Alliance (CBA)discuss the integration of credit building strategies and IDA matched savings accounts. The webinar explains how combining these two approaches to asset building can result in enhanced success and financial stability. For a credit building program, saving regularly in an IDA towards a dedicated goal can be a major motivator to simultaneously build credit; for an IDA matched savings program, building credit helps both with becoming eligible to make and making an affordable asset purchase. Representatives from both CBA and AFI present background and eligibility information of their respective programs. As both an AFI grantee and CBA member, CASA of Oregon present their program’s successful use of both strategies and their innovative credit building IDA that complements their AFI-funded IDAs for first home, business, and post-secondary education.
