CT United Ways Join ALICE Study
CT United Ways have joined United Ways in New Jersey, Michigan, Indiana, and Florida for a research project known as ALICE, which stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed and represents residents who earn more than the US poverty level, but less than the basic cost of living. Results of the study will be released on Labor Day, 2014. The report will serve as a starting point for policy discussion about solutions for financial instability. A previous 2012 study was conducted by Rutgers University, which will conduct the study again.
