Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed

ALICE is an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed – representing the growing number of 
single adults and families who earn less than the basic costs of living (Below the ALICE Threshold).

39% of Connecticut households continue to live below the ALICE Threshold — the income necessary to live and work in the modern economy.

This 39% who are working hard to survive below the ALICE Threshold are buffeted by challenging crosscurrents created by economic, health, and climate changes. Improving conditions for ALICE families fuels economic growth, benefiting all households, communities and businesses in the state. Together, we can create communities where ALICE, and all households, thrive in Connecticut.
