All About the Outreach Grant
Amy Becktell, Chapter Leader

On October 21, 2016, the Colorado Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (CCDHH) announced that seven out of nine grant applications were selected for fiscal year 2017 for a funding total of $44,812.

The Western Colorado Chapter of Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) was awarded a grant in the amount of $7,562. This grant will support the Chapter with its three-fold project activities:

  1. Communication Access Real-time Translation service at meetings (live captioning)
  2. Equipment purchase for demonstration and outreach
  3. Development of a new website

This chapter is expanding its mission by reaching out to individuals, businesses, service providers, and government agencies in western Colorado to create awareness of technology, services, and information available to people who are deaf and hard of hearing.

At this meeting we will exhibit the equipment we are purchasing through the grant, and discuss the plans for our community outreach. Please come to learn more about what this grant means for the Chapter, the community, and people with hearing loss in Western Colorado.

An induction hearing loop and captions will be available.
People of all ages and all types of hearing loss are welcome!

All meetings are free to members and non-members, including family and friends.
Refreshments will be served.
