Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund

Health service providers such as 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 (HIRF) program, led by Local Health Integration Networks, provides funds to supplement a hospital’s existing renewal program and help address renewal needs (e.g., roofing systems, boilers, windows) on a priority basis.

Hospitals can receive a HIRF 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.

For more details on the fund, please refer to the HIRF Guidelines provided below.
