LENA Home Launch Funds

At LENA, we know that resources and budgets are more constrained than ever as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. In response, our funders have stepped up to help fund the launch of new LENA Home partnerships. Like us, they believe that interactions with children matter now more than ever and that supporting those who are caring for children is essential. Not only does LENA have proven outcomes in increasing school readiness, but LENA’s indirect benefits, including increasing caregiver capacity and self-efficacy while lowering caregiver stress, support the overall well-being of children.

Launch funds, available by application until June 30th, will offset a significant portion of the costs to implement LENA Home. They will allow partners to get started and to scale incrementally as they are able to secure more funding. Through working with hundreds of partners across the country, LENA’s data driven feedback and strengths-based coaching have helped programs support parents and caregivers and improve outcomes for young children. 

To learn more about LENA Home, please read through the LENA Home Proposal before proceeding to the application.
