ALICE in Maryland

About one out of three households in Maryland has income above the federal poverty level, but not enough to cover basic necessities like housing, food, child care, health care and transportation. That’s the conclusion of The ALICE Project -- United Way’s statewide analysis which reveals a staggering situation in almost every county. We ask Franklyn Baker, president and CEO of United Way of Central Maryland, to help us understand ALICE -- asset-limited, income-constrained, employed. On June 8 United Way of Central Maryland is sponsoring a policy forum to address the challenges of ALICE. You can register for that event here.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
