[ONLINE] IDA Grant Info Session – Portland | June 22

Event Overview

For nearly 20 years, Mercy Corps Northwest has offered Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) to assist Oregonians in saving money to start or grow a small business by enrolling them in a grant program.

The program requires grantees to save $1,000 over a period of 13 months to 24 months and one day. The $1,000 in savings is then matched with $5,000 in grant money provided by MCNW for a combined total of $6,000 for their business. Participants will also be pre-approved for a $1,000 credit-building loan.
