Manatee County 2023 ALICE Report

The annual ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Report compiled by United Way Suncoast and its research partner, United For ALICE is a great resource for local nonprofits to gain additional insights on the people that they serve.

Some highlights from this year’s ALICE Report:

  • The number of families living paycheck to paycheck in Manatee County rose by 16 percent during the first two years of the pandemic.
  • Manatee now has more than 66,000 households that are classified as ALICE or living under the federal poverty line. That’s 41 percent of all Manatee households that are struggling to make ends meet or stand just one unexpected expense away from dire circumstances.
  • That percentage is even higher in Bradenton (48 percent) and Palmetto (51 percent).
