PA HLA Gathers Over 155 Supporters for the Hearing Aid Tax Credit Event

Mar 23 2009

Pennsylvania is joining the list of States that have worked hard to bring out people in support of a federal hearing aid tax credit. On March 28 at 10 am, a brunch will be held in Ft. Washington, Pennsylvania to facilitate a discussion about the hearing aid tax credit with Representative Allyson Schwartz and her constituents.

HLAA is working with a coalition of national organizations supporting the re-introduction of the Hearing Aid Tax Credit bill. Working together, we built a lot of momentum last year and look to continue to build on that this year.

Members of HLAA state organizations and chapters have contributed endless hours holding events in their own communities that bring together Congressional representatives and their constituents to talk about the important of a hearing aid tax credit. Events have been held in California, Maryland and Michigan and more are planned. Often, our local members and AG Bell members are able to bring in 100-130 people including children with hearing loss who let their representatives know how important a tax credit will be to help make hearing aids affordable.

Pennsylvania has done a terrific job raising awareness about this event: 11 days in advance of the brunch 155 people signed up to attend! Great work, Pennsylvania!
