Information that you provide will be kept strictly confidential. If this application is selected for assistance, the resulting transaction, and any claim or dispute arising out of such transaction, shall be governed by the laws of the state of Illinois. If you have already been awarded, or have sought cochlear implant equipment from another organization (such as the CNI), and are applying for financial assistance for surgical, hospital, or other CI related fees only, please do not apply.
CIAF accepts applications for equipment assistance only. CIAF provides NO monetary assistance whatsoever nor any funding for cochlear implant surgery. All requests for equipment must be verified by the patient’s doctor or audiologist. Processors and most equipment will be sent directly to the patient’s CI center for programming.
If approved, you will be notified of the total shipping cost before we send out any equipment. A PayPal invoice will be sent and equipment will ship as soon as the invoice is paid.
