LAEDA to Offer IDA Savings Match Program to Alumni Starting Spring 2020

Posted on 1/2/2020 by EDTP Coordinator in LAEDA News

With the new year comes new opportunities, and this year is no exception at LAEDA. Beginning Spring 2020, LAEDA will begin accepting applications to the Lubert IDA Small Business Expansion Program on behalf of the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey (UWGPSNJ). This program is an opportunity for participants to increase their assets and improve their financial stability by setting aside monthly savings for their businesses that UWGPSNJ matches at a 2:1 ratio. Thus for every $10 an IDA participant puts into a business savings account, UWGPSNJ will deposit $20. Participants also receive financial literacy and small business expansion training, one-to-one counseling, and personal finance and money management educational classes. As a result of this comprehensive, free package of services, qualified small business owners can participate and save up to $4500 to invest in the growth of their business.
