In order to better understand this growing population of struggling households, United For ALICE provides a framework, language, statistics, and tools that community stakeholders can use to inform policy and drive innovation.
The ALICE data uncovers the harsh realities faced by these struggling veterans. In 2019, more than half (55%) of veterans living in financial hardship spent at least 35% of their income on rent, stretching their budgets even thinner.
