About The National Hearing Aid Project

The National Hearing Aid Project is a unique model and one-of-a-kind collaboration created by Hearing Charities of America (HCOA). It addresses the increased demand for hearing aids by providing hearing aids to low-income individuals on a national scale.

The project brings organizations together so that each fulfills a specific role in providing hearing aids to the individuals that need them. HCOA has partnered with the Department of Speech-Language-Hearing: Sciences & Disorders at the University of Kansas to maintain and track all of the hearing aids in the program.

The primary services involved in this project are:

  • Accepting and reviewing applications
  • Refurbishing hearing aids
  • Performing hearing health evaluations
  • Soliciting support and services from others who can help support the project
