This report shows us that 42 percent of all Louisiana families are ALICE or live below the ALICE Threshold. This means that 42 percent of all Louisiana families are not earning enough to “get by” based on a Household Survival Budget that uses conservative estimates of monthly expenses for housing, child care, food, transportation, health care, and taxes. These ALICE families are working hard but are one small emergency away from a major financial crisis.
Join Louisiana United Ways as we seek to better understand the challenges so many face and to identify solutions that make it easier for ALICE to become more financially secure. Let’s all work together to build a stronger and more prosperous Louisiana.
