Education Savings Accounts - UPDATE!
The State of Iowa selects the Odyssey group to administer and manage the ESA program.
Odyssey was chosen based on its ability to manage all aspects of program administration, including applications, financial transactions, compliance, fraud prevention, and customer service. Odyssey currently manages ESA programs in two states.
Details about the application process, including when it will begin and how families will verify school enrollment and/or income eligibility, will be provided in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, families interested in the Students First ESA program can find information about eligibility and answers to frequently asked questions on the Iowa Department of Education website. The webpage is updated regularly, and families are encouraged to sign up to receive notifications when new information is posted.
