Parkinson Voice Project's SPEAK OUT!® & LOUD Crowd® Grant Program launched in 2018 to make quality speech treatment accessible to people with Parkinson's. Grant Recipients receive free SPEAK OUT!® & LOUD Crowd® training for their speech-language pathologists and graduate students, as well as speech therapy supplies. Select clinics also receive funding to support their LOUD Crowd® groups and a trip to Dallas-Fort Worth to visit Parkinson Voice Project's clinic.
