A total of 600 students will be selected for the scientific study, 300 of whom will be randomly selected to participate in the IDA savings program.

The 300 students who receive the IDA will be able to save a maximum of $1,000, which will be matched by $4,000 for a maximum total savings of $5,000. The CNM Foundation and the U.S. Health and Human Services Department will provide the $4 match for every $1 each selected student saves. Students will be able to use the savings to pay for education, purchase a home, or start/expand a small business.
