Grants For Senior Citizens Needing Hearing Aids

One-third of senior citizens have hearing problems.

One-third of Americans age 65 and over experience some hearing loss. Senior citizens who are living with a hearing loss miss many of life's most enjoyable moments. But purchasing hearing aids is beyond the financial reach of many senior citizens. Fortunately, there are organizations they can turn to for grants or financial assistance.


Audient, launched by the Northwest Lions Foundation for Sight and Hearing, is a nonprofit organization that provides greatly discounted hearing aids to senior citizens. Candidates qualify based on their annual household income.
