Roughly 20% of Americans (well over 48 million) have some degree of hearing loss. The TPA Hearing Trust wants to make sure they are getting the help they need and the respect they deserve.
The selection of recipients and amount of aid awarded is decided upon by the majority of the Trustees, and special consideration is given to individuals with the greatest need.
Persons who are deaf or hard of hearing, or the families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
