Grants to USA organizations for programs and projects to increase access to pediatric audiology and LSL intervention services for infants and toddlers with hearing loss. Applicants are required to submit an online LOI prior to a full grant application. The Foundation is focused on raising awareness and increasing access to education, resources, hearing technology and coordinated services.

The Trustees of the Oberkotter Foundation are committed to helping caring adults support infants and toddlers with hearing loss to have the same listening, spoken language and literacy opportunities as their hearing peers. 

For the Fall 2021 Program Support Grant cycle, the Oberkotter Foundation is inviting proposals for projects that will expand coordinated pediatric audiology and LSL intervention to more families of infants and toddlers (0-3) in more communities.   

The Oberkotter Foundation is particularly interested in cost-effective delivery models that meet the needs of families and that can be scaled or replicated.
