For nearly 60 years, HHF has funded groundbreaking research to find cures and treatments for hearing and balance disorders. Select a program to explore our scientific progress, meet our researchers, or learn our grant application process.
Our Emerging Research Grants program, established in 1958, provides support for research endeavors carried out by early-stage investigators who are beginning work in the field of hearing and balance.
Since 2011, the Hearing Restoration Project has worked collaboratively to research ways to regenerate hair cells in the human ear to restore hearing. It is the only international research consortium of its kind.
100% of every dollar donated to our programs goes directly toward our critical research and awareness work. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, our researchers have achieved significant advancements. But much more must be done to propel the discoveries of cures for hearing loss, tinnitus, and related conditions.
