ALICE

Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed

ALICE® is an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. Our neighbors who are ALICE often live paycheck-to-paycheck and are one emergency away from crisis. They live above the Federal Poverty Level but don’t have enough income to meet their basic needs. This means they earn too much to qualify for assistance but aren’t financially stable; one missed paycheck, one illness, or one car breakdown could cause a spiral into poverty.

Delaware is a partner with United For ALICE, a nationwide initiative that’s using critical research to lift our neighbors from the unfair struggle to survive and back to the path of financial stability.

 

The ALICE Delaware Report is now available!
A full report of meaningful data to drive awareness, advocacy, and action for Delaware’s ALICE families and individuals.
