Who is ALICE?

With the cost of living higher than what most wages pages, ALICE families - an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed - work hard and earn above the Federal Poverty Level, but not enough to afford a basic household budget of housing, child care, food, transportation, and health care. ALICE households live in every parish in Louisiana - urban, suburban and rural. They include women and men, young and old, of all races and ethnicities.
