OUR PRIORITY

Every child deserves and benefits from access to Reach Out ​and Read but children who are part of historically ​marginalized, underserved communities benefit from the ​program most. When launching new programs, we prioritize:



Even if your clinic doesn’t fall into one of the above priority ​categories, we encourage you to apply. We will bring on as ​many new programs as funding permits.

EXPANDING IN FQHCS

Reach Out and Read, Northeast is proud to partner with the ​Overdeck Family Foundation to ensure that our program ​reaches as many children served by FQHCs as possible. The ​Foundation has made it possible for us to offer FQHCs an ​expedited application process and enhanced financial and ​technical support.


Reach Out and Read’s National Center uses a single ​application for all kinds of pediatric primary care sites. Some ​of the questions on that application do not apply to Federally ​Qualified Health Centers.

COMING SOON TO MAINE!!

Maine is home to more than 60,000 children under age 5. For ​the past 23 years, another literacy program, Raising Readers ​met most of their early literacy needs. That program ended in ​March, 2024. We are working to ensure that early literacy and ​relational health promotion continue to be an integral part of ​pediatric primary care in the state.
