The Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health is supported by NIH grants to Center faculty, a gift from Cochlear Ltd., and other philanthropic, foundation funding, infrastructural support and resources from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
- NIH - Current NIH grants led directly by or involving Center faculty total in excess of $20 million and fund research areas that are advancing the Center mission. These include NIH grants:

- Eleanor Schwartz Charitable Foundation - The Foundation provides support to Center faculty and trainees to carry out research and training related to hearing loss, public health and aging.
- Estate of Miriam Hardy - Miriam Hardy was a world-renowned speech pathologist and audiologist at Johns Hopkins who, with her husband, William Hardy, revolutionized the process of identifying and educating children with hearing and speech disorders. A gift from her estate continues to support research trainees interested in the interface of hearing and public health.
