About the Toyota Family Literacy Program
About TFLP
The Toyota Family Literacy Program (TFLP) was
established in 2003 by the National Center for Family
Literacy (NCFL) with funding from Toyota to meet the
urgent educational needs of Hispanic and other immigrant
families.

TFLP works to improve the language and literacy skills
of the family and to connect parents to their children’s
education and their children’s school. Since 2003, more
than 600 school districts have applied for the award.
Currently, 75 schools in 25 cities have implemented the
program.
