Four grants from Assets for Independence (AFI), a program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, fund approximately 50% ($700,000) of costs for MesaCAN’s IDA Program. The remaining 50% ($700,000) is funded through non-Federal sources. Visit the AFI Resource Center website to learn more about the program and about helping families to build assets.
