ALICE, a United Way acronym which stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, is a way of defining and understanding our families, neighbors, and colleagues (men and women) who work hard, earn above the federal poverty level, but not enough to afford a basic household budget of housing, child care, food, transportation, and health care.

The United Way ALICE Project is a collaborative effort to improve the lives of vulnerable, low-income ALICE households. Based on the overwhelming success of the research in identifying and communicating the needs of ALICE households, the Project has grown from a pilot in Morris County, New Jersey in 2007, to the entire state of New Jersey in 2012, and to the national level in 2014 with Reports in six states representing one-quarter of the U.S. population. And the momentum is growing! Several new Reports are currently in development, with expected release in the summer of 2017. The partners in this grassroots effort are working together to give ALICE a national voice.  By sharing common language and understanding, stakeholders are better equipped to tackle crucial issues for ALICE and the wider community.
