Obtaining a hearing aid that meets an individual’s unique hearing loss needs can make a real difference in their personal and professional life. Improved hearing can allow a parent to hear their child’s laughter, assist in gaining employment, and even help someone advance their career.
Hearing Charities of America has created the National Hearing Aid Project because we believe that healthy hearing should be enjoyed by all; regardless of income.

Hearing Charities is fortunate enough to have a trusted network of audiologists and clinics who have offered their time and resources to this project. Through as little as three appointments you can be evaluated, fitted, and have a follow up appointment.
Your hearing loss will be evaluated so that the proper hearing aid can be chosen from our National Hearing Aid Bank and sent to one of our labs for refurbishing.
If you have already been evaluated within the last 6 months, you can attach your hearing test to your application and move on to the fitting step.
Once your audiologist receives the aid(s) from our lab you will be fitted with your aid(s), and your last required appointment will be scheduled.
During the last visit your audiologist will ensure that your aid(s) is still working properly, and adjustments will be made as needed.
The warranty on the hearing aid begins when it is shipped from the lab to your audiologist. It is important that your fitting be scheduled quickly to allow full use of the warranty.
Once accepted into the program, recipients will be asked to share their story to help pay it forward so that others may participate in the project. This personal online fundraiser will be short, and gives friends and family the opportunity to help.
