Affordable Hearing Aid Project - AHAP

Hearing impairment is one disability issue that has actually gotten worse in the past several decades. Hearing loss affects 278 million people worldwide. When people are not able to pay the high cost of quality hearing aids—which cost an average of US$3,600 each and are often not covered by insurance—they are left with poor-functioning hearing aids, or, even worse, in silence.

Through AHAP, Lions are reaching hearing-impaired people of limited income in almost every community in the United States. AHAP’s continuum of care model involves providing high-quality, low-cost hearing aids as well as services of hearing care professionals to conduct tests, fit the aids and provide follow-up care.

Lions have worked for many years to help the hearing impaired, collecting thousands of hearing aids and volunteering thousands of hours for hearing-related service projects. LCIF has awarded 124 grants totaling US$5,021,448 for hearing-related projects around the world.

The AHAP program is only available through local Lions clubs; individuals may not apply independently to receive a hearing aid. Please email your request to and we will help you to apply it.
