2021 COVID Survey ReportCOVID-19 Impact Survey | 2021 Florida Results Report

In March 2020, United Way of Florida in partnership with several Florida United Way organizations, conducted a survey to measure the impact of COVID-19 on Floridians with special emphasis on the ALICE® population.  Through this survey, we were able to gather nearly 12,000 responses.  The resulting Report provides a needed bridge between the current ALICE Report and the ensuing economic effects of the pandemic.  The Report and Guidelines for Use are included here.


United Way ALICE® Report: Florida

ALICE® refers to the population in our communities that are Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.  The ALICE population represents those among us who are working, but due to child care costs, transportation challenges, high cost of living and so much more are living paycheck to paycheck. 

To achieve lasting change, we must first understand the population of families that are working hard but falling short in each of our communities and across Florida.  We commissioned the United Way ALICE Report to better understand this challenged and often overlooked population and provide each local United Way with data to promote stronger and more resilient communities. 

Local United Ways have long worked with the ALICE® population in the areas of education, income and health to build better lives.  The Report clarifies and describes the complex challenges they face and provides invaluable insight regarding how to promote policies and programs that benefit everyone.   

United Way of Florida has an ongoing commitment to providing accurate, relevant information on the at-risk population of Floridians, and releases an updated Report on a bi-annual basis.
