Topeka, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Commerce is extending its Request for Proposals seeking qualified organizations to administer the Individual Development Account (IDA) program. The new deadline for applications is July 14.

Organizations can serve a specific region, multiple regions or the state as a whole, and will receive up to $100,000 in tax credits annually. The organization is granted up to 20% of the earned funds to use for operations cost the first two years they administer the program, and 15% for each year thereafter.

The Kansas Department of Administration is hosting a conference call on at 10 a.m. Tuesday, June 30, to answer any questions on the IDA program and the administrator application. This call is open to the public.
