Put the ALICE Economic Viability Dashboard to Use in Your Community
February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
A free virtual educational program offered in partnership with
ALICE = Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed
The ALICE Economic Viability Dashboard provides key data on the economic conditions that matter most to ALICE households: Housing, Work, and Community Resources – for every community in the country. Join us to learn how to map your community, compare it with others, and build an action plan. We will demonstrate the many interactive features of the dashboard. And we will share how to use the Action Toolkit to quantify gaps, pair them with promising practices, and engage community stakeholders.
By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:
- Identify the gaps that ALICE workers and families face in reaching financial stability in your community
- Build an action plan to address the gaps and barriers ALICE families face
