In the short history of New Mexico’s involvement in the Individual Development Account (IDA) economic and workforce development strategy, the effort has seen notable results. Key to this strategy is the ability for each participant to establish their own goals; to understand that self-improvement is up to them; and to drive their own success through consistent financial savings, rigorous financial empowerment, and increased financial savvy. 

Opening the opportunity for hard-working, limited-income New Mexican families to invest in their future brings solid., lasting economic skills.
