The Barriers and Paths to Opportunity for Connecticut’s Working Households
Special thanks to the Presenting Sponsor: Liberty Bank Foundation
United Way of Connecticut found that the “survival budget” for Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed (ALICE) individuals and families is burdened by major unavoidable costs: childcare, transportation and housing.
Yet too many major employers, business leaders and policymakers don’t realize that 1 of every 3 Connecticut households is an ALICE household. We explore the difficult, and sometimes impossible, choices that ALICE households face every day and the public- and private-sector solutions that can lessen their burden so that they are able to move beyond mere survival and find new opportunity in Connecticut.
Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Commissioner Evonne Klein.
