NOTE: Online applications for Lighthouse services will be given strong preference through March 30 as we deal with staffing issues caused by COVID-19.
The Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation provides hearing aid assistance for approximately 1000 low-income Georgia residents every year. The Lighthouse partners with 150 hearing providers across the state, with top hearing aid manufacturers, and multiple other health organizations to provide these services. The program is funded in large part by the Georgia Public Service Commission.
The cost of the hearing aid package is based on a sliding scale. The client’s household size, income, and type of hearing aid needed will determine the cost of the package, ranging from $95 to $260 per aid. The Lighthouse does not cover the initial hearing exam. If you need a hearing test, please contact one of our partner audiologists or hearing aid dispensers.
