Entergy and the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation release ALICE in Arkansas Report

WHAT: Entergy Arkansas and the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation will release The ALICE in Arkansas Report, at a press conference — 11 a.m. March 10 in the Old Supreme Court Room at the State Capitol. The report paints a surprising picture of the scale of financial barriers experienced by nearly half a million households across the state. Around every corner and in every community, people are struggling to make ends meet.

ALICE, which stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, places a spotlight on a large population of hardworking residents who work at low-paying jobs, have little or no savings, and are one emergency from falling into poverty.

 The ALICE Report is the most comprehensive depiction of financial need in the state to date, using data from a variety of sources, including the U.S. Census. The report includes measures, based on present-day income levels and expenses that show how many Arkansas workers are struggling financially, and why.
