CalKIDS was created by the State of California to help more children be able to afford and attend higher education. Children born in California starting on July 1, 2022, and eligible low-income public school students are awarded a CalKIDS college savings account with an initial deposit in it. Enrollment in the savings program is automatic and families are not required to contribute. Julio Martinez, Executive Director of the ScholarShare Investment Board, discusses this program.
