Individual Development Accounts – Connecticut (2023)

Connecticut’s legislature authorized an IDA program in June 2000, through Public Act 00-192. The state Department of Labor manages a reserve fund of both state funds and private sector contributions, and certifies publicly and privately financed programs. Corporations that contribute to the state fund receive tax credits from the state. Donations to IDAs operated by non-profits are tax deductible. Community organizations administer the programs. Financial institutions provide accounts with no minimum balance or monthly fees, at least a market rate of interest, and assistance with the financial education aspects of the programs.

Like many other programs, Connecticut’s permissible savings goals include a down payment on a home, education or job training, small business investments. The state also includes the purchase of an automobile for maintaining or obtaining employment, and a deposit on a rental unit.

More information is available from the Connecticut Department of Labor.
