United Way of Connecticut


ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) may be a relative or friend. You may be ALICE. As cashiers, waiters, child care providers, and other members of our essential workforce, ALICE earns just above the Federal Poverty Level but less than what it costs to make ends meet. These struggling households are forced to make impossible choices each day. While such hardship is pervasive, households of color are disproportionately ALICE.

Connecticut United Ways are pleased to share with you this year’s Connecticut ALICE Report, ALICE in the Crosscurrents — a data-driven, comprehensive research project that provides a look at financial hardship for households across Connecticut that are ALICE — Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. The 2023 report offers not only an important opportunity to understand who is struggling and why, but also the specific ways COVID-19 has impacted our economy.
