2012/ 13 Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF) Grant
This year, 2012/13, the South East LHIN expects to receive a capital allocation to support hospitals with infrastructure projects through the 2012/13 Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF). In keeping with the Ministry LHIN Accountability Agreement (MLAA), for fiscal years after 2007/2008, LHINs are responsible for approving the HIRF grant to each hospital, as well as the project(s) that each hospital proposes to undertake using this grant.
Proposed HIRF projects must meet the program eligibility criteria described in the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund Guidelines (2012-2013) and receive SE LHIN approval in writing. Proceeding without such approval will negate any responsibility for funding the project(s).
Throughout the project(s), it will be your hospital's responsibility to ensure that all documents and work comply with the Ministry's Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund Guidelines (2012-2013), applicable sections of the Ministry’s Capital Planning Manual (1996), and all applicable codes and regulations.
Important documentation includes:
HIRF Submission Form
HIRF Settlement Report
HIRF Agreement Template
The Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund Guidelines (2012-2013), contains detailed information on this year’s approval and reporting requirements, accessing and submitting necessary forms, and relevant LHIN and contact information.
The Ministry’s Capital Planning Manual (1996).
To receive your grant and obtain approval for the project(s) you wish to undertake using this grant, please complete, sign and submit a HIRF Submission Form, as outlined in the letter from the SE LHIN specifying the individual hospital HIRF grant amount.
The SE LHIN looks forward to working with you to implement this 2012/13 HIRF initiative. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the HIRF program please contact Joe Sherman at (613) 967-0196 x2218 or email@example.com.
