The United Way of Western Connecticut plans to invest $498,000 in education, financial stability, and food insecurity programs in the Greater Danbury, Greater New Milford, and Stamford areas. The funding supports households that fall within the Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed income threshold and below. ALICE families earn income above the federal poverty level, but not enough to make ends meet. 
 
United Way CEO Kimberly Morgan says helping these households support children's success in school and access free financial services to help families stay on budget and save.
