article description
"News & Issues" piece on the Maine Family Development Account program, an incentive program that matches the savings of low-income families 2-1. The program was created in 1999 and, as of December 2000, had attracted just 28 participants. Although assets are available to provide nearly $1 million in matching state and federal funds, only about $13,000 has been used.
