The Family Assets for Independence in Minnesota (FAIM) program is a matched savings project to help Minnesota low-wage earners build assets through;
purchase of a home
pursuit of a higher education
or launching of a small business.
This is accomplished by FAIM participants placing up to $40 monthly savings from their earned income into Family Asset Accounts (savings accounts) which will be matched 3-1 upon completion of asset contracts. FAIM Brochure: FAIM – Updated 8-8-18
