(Briefly) About IDA Program
  • The employee saves $50 a month for 24 months.
  • The money they save was matched by Marriott money and by two grants (so they our associates in fact got $200/month for their $50 investment)
  • Employees (and family members) participated in financial literacy training.

Marriott Reservation Center was a pilot employer in the Omaha area to participate in the Individual Development Account Program.
  • We started in about 2004 and were the only for-profit organization in Omaha participating at first.

Marriott started with an investment of $10,000 in 2004 to sponsor 10 associates to purchase homes.
  • Besides the monetary investment Marriott gave of their time to help get the news out about the program and Marriott allowed United Way and Family Housing to use space in our Center for the associates to meet.
