New Mexico encourages citizens to save
Low-income residents in New Mexico now have more incentive than ever to save for a home, an education or their own business. In the 2006 legislative session, the state provided $1.5 million to fund the Individual Development Account Act that passed in 2003.

Since 2007, the state of New Mexico has invested $2.45 million to support Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) for New Mexico savers. This funding provides a much-needed local match required by federal IDA funding, which was awarded through the Assets for Independence Act.

The national Community Action program began in the 1960s to serve as a focal point in local communities for the war on poverty.

Many programs continue to thrive today, and in mostly rural southern New Mexico, a highly productive Community Action Agency is paving the way to financial stability and success for thousands of low-income working families.
