ALICE Economic Viability Dashboard Training

Learn about and access the new Economic Viability Dashboard. Explore the economic and community conditions experienced by ALICE households. Join fellow nonprofits and community members to learn about the The ALICE Economic Viability Dashboard. The EVD reveals the economic and community conditions of people who are struggling financially — those below the ALICE Threshold. This includes people in households with income below the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and those who are ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed), with income above the FPL but below the cost of basics. By studying ALICE households as well as those in poverty, United For ALICE research shows the true extent of financial hardship across the country. The ALICE Economic Viability Dashboard builds on this research, exploring why so many households are struggling, with new data on ALICE work, housing, and community resources. Following a use-case, the United Way of Greater Chattanooga team will share what you can do with the dashboard and how you can use it to better understand the experience of your clients and communities.
