ALICE represents the 27% of West Virginians who work, but struggle to survive. ALICE stands for 

Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. 

ALICE earns above the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), but makes less than what’s needed to afford basic essentials. ALICE often earns too much to qualify for government assistance, and there is no room in ALICE’s budget for emergency expenses. If you combine WV households earning below the ALICE threshold, with those living below the FPL, that’s 47% of West Virginia households who face financial hardship every day, in every county across the state.
