The Personal Investment Enterprise (PIE) program provides tools that empower low-income individuals and families to save and build assets to strengthen their economic stability. The PIE program offers Individual Development Accounts (IDA) to Broomfield County residents.
Individual Development accounts are a savings program that provides a 4:1 match for individuals and families to use for home ownership, secondary education or small business development. You save up to $1,000 and the program will match with $4,000 to put towards a down payment on a home, attend college, or to start or build a small business.
