The United Way of Northern New Jersey and the  United Way of Hunterdon County have launched a fund to aid low-income households affected by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

The ALICE Recovery Fund was established to address emerging needs of ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households and those in poverty in response to the pandemic. Eligible households will receive a minimum financial award of $500.

The Fund is strictly limited to assisting residents of Hunterdon, Morris, Somerset, Suburban Essex, Sussex and Warren counties. (Suburban Essex includes the Caldwells, Cedar Grove, Essex Fells, Fairfield, Glen Ridge, Livingston, Millburn-Short Hills, Montclair, Roseland and Verona.)

Applicants will need to provide documentation that their household income qualifies as falling below the ALICE Threshold prior to the pandemic. In addition, applicants must show a loss of income due to the pandemic, beginning February 1, 2020. The income guidelines are as follows:

  • Single adults must have had an annual income below $35,560 without dependents or no more than $88,128 with two or more dependents.
  • Two adult households must have had an annual income below $52,444 without dependents or no more than $103,836 with two or more dependents.

To complete the application go to,  http://www.UnitedWayNNJ.org/ALICEassistance.

As the need is great, United Way asks that anyone who can afford to donate, please consider making a tax-deductible gift to the Fund. The more we raise, the more we can assist ALICE families. Donations can be made to the ALICE Recovery Fund online at UnitedWayNNJ.org/ALICErecovery
