The Family Assets for Independence in Minnesota (FAIM) program helps resident Minnesota wage earners build assets through purchase of a first home, pursuit of a higher education at an accredited public post secondary institution, or small business capitalization. FAIM account holders place monthly savings into Bremer Bank or City County Federal Credit Union family asset accounts (savings accounts) that will be matched $3 to $1 upon completion of program requirements. The FAIM program is administered by a list of agencies throughout Minnesota.
