This study of Individual Development Accounts (IDA) design, implementation, and administration was conducted during the first two years of a national policy demonstration called the “American Dream Demonstration” (ADD). The demonstration is designed to test the efficacy of asset building initiatives for low-wealth individuals, households, and communities. The evaluation of ADD is a six year multi-method study (1997 to 2003) of IDAs at 13 sponsoring organizations around the country.
