ALICE Calculator

ALICE, an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, is a new way of defining and understanding the struggles of households that earn above the Federal Poverty Level, but not enough to afford a bare-bones household budget. If you would like to learn more about ALICE families in Indiana, check out The ALICE Project.

This calculator will help you determine if your household is an ALICE household.

You may use adjusted gross income from your last tax return. Or, if wages are your only source of income, add up the gross income from your W2(s). Or, multiply your hourly rate x number of hours you work x 52 weeks/year.


Please describe the ages of the people in your household. (do not include yourself)
