MCHB Expands National Footprint of LEND Training Programs

July 12, 2016

The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) within the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has announced funding awards for a record 49 Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) programs. These programs, which are located at universities and hospitals across the country, prepare trainees from a wide variety of professional disciplines to assume leadership roles in the delivery of services to children with autism and other neurodevelopmental disabilities in clinical practice, research, and public policy. NM LEND Program at the Center for Development and Disability received one of the 49 grant awards.

LEND is one of several initiatives funded by federal Autism CARES legislation; this month's announcement reflects an increased annual investment of $1.84 million in what was already a $28 million network. As a result, there are now LEND programs located in 42 US states (up from 37), with an additional six states and two territories reached through program partnerships. Each LEND is responsible for training long-term (i.e. 300 or more hours) trainees per year across at least seven health or allied health disciplines. This new cycle of LEND grants began on July 1, 2016 and will continue through June 30, 2021.
