Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF) 2018-2019

Information for Central LHIN Hospitals

Hospitals are responsible for ensuring that their facilities are in a good state of repair by managing their capital assets and planning renewal activities. The Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund provides funds to supplement a hospital's existing capital renewal program and help address renewal needs (e.g., roofing systems, boilers, windows) on a priority basis.

Under this program, hospitals can receive a grant for eligible projects regardless of their own ability to raise a local share of the project costs. There is no cost-sharing requirement and 100% of the grant can be used on a single project.

Hospitals can select projects based on their own priorities, subject to the program eligibility criteria outlined in the guidelines.

Similar to previous years, the grant distribution process has been integrated with the Facility Condition Assessment Program (FCAP) in order to help hospitals prioritize HIRF projects.
