LUBERT INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT ACCOUNT
Helping individuals and families build assets and income
Low-income families face especially high barriers in building assets and developing wealth.
These barriers to building assets are partly due to challenges with accessing capital, labor market segregation, and extractive practices and policies. This is especially evident for communities of color. By starting a United Way-supported Lubert IDA Program, individuals can build their assets through matched savings for homeownership, post-secondary education, and small business expansion.
A gift to United Way can help a family purchase their first home, get an education or grow their business.
