Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF)
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) 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.
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.
Hospitals can select projects based on their renewal priorities, subject to the program eligibility criteria as indicated in the HIRF Guidelines. Each hospital is responsible for ensuring that it undertakes work of the highest priority.
