Our Sliding-Scale Fee Program

Providing financial assistance to families with a proven need.

The Lucy Project is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization on a mission to remove barriers to literacy for all children in Miami-Dade County. We hope one day these resources will be free for all. For now, we continue to ask funders to support our vision so we can offer financial assistance to families who are unable to pay the full amount. We are currently able to subsidize the cost of tutoring on a sliding scale. When all funded spots are full, applicants are placed on a waiting list.



The following table is based on the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). If you would like assistance in understanding where your family is on this scale, please call (786) 520-6306 or email info@lucyproject.org.  

Please Note:


We require a minimum of three 50-minute sessions per week for all students. This is based on research that shows the frequency with which a child receives remediation is critical to their success.
