Education Savings Accounts


The Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) has established the Opportunity LA Children's Savings Account Program for first grade students in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). The program will automatically open a college savings account with an initial $50 deposit for every student entering first-grade at selected LAUSD schools in spring 2021, and for all LAUSD first-graders in fall 2021. The program WILL NOT impact any public benefits that the family might have. The program is only available to families within the Los Angeles Unified School District.

The program is a partnership among the City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles, and LAUSD. It is offered on a year-to-year basis and will continue beyond the current school year at the discretion of the program.

Parents will have options to contribute funds into their children's account. Based on funding availability, there will also be opportunities to earn additional funds through incentives that students can participate in.
