Better Future Forward, a nonprofit focused on making ISAs more accessible, has launched a pair of funds to test the viability of ‘ISAs’ with more than 200 low-income students in the city of Chicago and states of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Key to the model are partnerships with college success and coaching programs that provide lower-income students with the kind of support wealthier students take for granted when they arrive at college.
