United for ALICE Project
The United For ALICE Project is a nationwide effort to provide a more accurate picture of financial insecurity at the state, county, and municipal level. It provides a framework, language, and tools to measure and understand the struggles of a population called ALICE — an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.
ALICE earns above the federal poverty level but does not earn enough to afford a bare-bones household budget of housing, childcare, food, transportation, and health care. The United For ALICE Project raises awareness about this huge but hidden segment of our community that is struggling.
The ALICE data is especially important now to help government, business, non-profit, educational, and community leaders identify those who are struggling the most in their communities, and direct programming and resources to assist them throughout the ongoing crisis and the recovery that follows.
