Reports

In a collaborative effort, United Ways in several states (and more on the way) are changing the way we think about financial need in their state and across the country.

This effort grew from a project first initiated in 2009 at United Way of Northern New Jersey. In 2014, United Ways in several states issued Reports and began to use the data to inform the strategies to strengthen their communities. Many other state Reports are in development, with an expected release in the fall of 2015 and 2016.ALICE Cohort Map

Through a series of new, standardized measurements, the United Way ALICE Reports present a broad picture of financial insecurity at the county and town level, and the reasons for why. What we found was startling – the size of the workforce in each state that is struggling financially is much higher than traditional federal poverty guidelines suggest. The United Way ALICE Project is a grassroots movement stimulating a fresh, nonpartisan national dialogue about how to reverse the trend and improve conditions for this growing population of families living paycheck to paycheck.
