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.

Welcome remarks:
Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Commissioner Evonne Klein.

Keynote Speaker:
George W. “Mac” McCarthy – President and CEO, Lincoln Institute of Land Policy
A former vice president at The Ford Foundation, McCarthy is an accomplished housing economist who focuses on social justice through land-use policy around the world.
