About Indiana Learns

Passed in January 2022, House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1251 outlined requirements for the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) to establish and administer a microgrants program to support students in recovering from learning loss caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In summer 2022, IDOE contracted with The Mind Trust to manage implementation of Indiana Learns. The Mind Trust was selected for its long history in successfully collaborating with funders, schools, and community partners to meet the elevated community needs stemming from COVID-19 and unjust systems. In particular, The Mind Trust’s work in managing the Indiana Learning Lab and Indy Summer Learning Labs effectively positioned it to deliver exceptional results for students and families through Indiana Learns.

Indiana Learns is partnering with Student First Technologies to handle the creation and implementation of the family and vendor platform. Student First Technologies is an innovative leader in delivering nimble technology solutions that support educational programs.
