The Humboldt IDA program, part of the Department of Health and Human Services Assets for Independence program, closed at the end of 2014. At the end of the 5 year grant, 67 participants received $164,226 in savings match grants from AEDC. Combined with their savings, this totaled nearly $229,000 used for the purchase of business assets or education job training.

Thank you to Wells Fargo for their generous support of AEDC's IDA programs in Del Norte and Mendocino, as well as the Farm IDA, and 2012 Humboldt Microenterprise business program beginning in Fall of 2011. Their support, with the Department of Health and Human Services Assets for Independence Grant, makes this program possible.
