Contra Costa – Moving Assets Toward Community Hands (CC-MATCH) is a matched savings program for individuals with low incomes looking to access their first high return asset such as:
- A Home
- Post-secondary Education
- Establishing a Small Business
Since CC-MATCH started in 2004, 98 people have completed the program, met their savings goals and received match funds. Of these, 72 made a down payment on their first home, 17 paid for educational expenses, and 9 invested in their own business. CHDC has leveraged over $17.5 million in assets through matched savings to assist participants in meeting their homeownership, education or small business goals.
