Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund

Community providers are responsible for planning infrastructure renewal activities to ensure that their facilities are in a good state of repair.

Recognizing the need for the renewal of community health care infrastructure, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (Ministry) created the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund (CIRF) program as part of the Community Health Capital Programs policy. LHINs play a critical role in advising on, and endorsing, the program and service elements of all capital projects in the early capital planning stages.

This program is intended to supplement eligible community providers in addressing renewal needs on a priority basis. The CIRF provides funding for ongoing repair and renewal needs for community programs meeting specific criteria relating to asset ownership and lease length, and based on an assessment of asset condition.
