In May, United Ways across Louisiana and the Louisiana Association of United Ways conducted a statewide survey to assess the impact the COVID19 crisis had, thus far, on Louisiana families. Preliminary results are in and despite the dynamic challenges faced, Louisianans’ number one concern is contracting COVID-19.

Before the pandemic hit, one in four Louisiana households were led by workers unable to earn enough to cover the basics and save for unexpected crises or a job loss.

This survey, conducted at zero cost, thanks to a network of volunteer experts, including Steven Dick, PhD., member of the Louisiana ALICE (Asset limited, Income-constrained and Employed) Research Advisory Council, and advisory assistance provided by the National ALICE Project Team.
