What is Regional Health Infrastructure Fund?

In 2016 the Victorian Government established the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund as part of its commitment to better health for people in rural and regional Victoria. The Regional Health Infrastructure Fund has continued and is administered as an annual grant program. Round 4 will be delivered in 2019-20.

 

How to get this grant?

Your Regional Health Infrastructure Fund application will need to show:

  1. How your hospital is under demand pressures from increasing population or changing demographics. What evidence do you have?
  2. How your current buildings are not fit for purpose? An example is moving from low-care to high-care residential aged services? How can you prove this?
  3. That your buildings and equipment need a major refurbishment? Why are your current facilities not adequate?
  4. That safety and quality of services is being compromised? Do you have figures or incidents to support this claim?
  5. That you are failing compliance and regulatory requirements. Any evidence to support this?
  6. Clinical risk is increasing.  Can you show a trend of increasing risks or a recent risk management report?

 

Objectives

The key objective of the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund is to assist regional and rural health services to improve:

  • safety and quality of services, including risk management relating to assets and infrastructure
  • enhance service capacity
  • support delivery of efficient models of care,
  • patient and staff amenity, and
  • service efficiency.

Funding allocation under the programs is outlined in the Department of Health and Human Services Policy and Funding Guidelines and approved by the Minister for Health.

 

Funding

Round 4 of the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund will include a $10 million Aged Care component which will be administered as a discrete grant program. The Aged Care Regional Health Infrastructure Fund will utilise the same submission process, timelines and assessment framework as Regional Health Infrastructure Fund.

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services manages the Fund as an annual Grant program.

Round 4 will comprise a mixture of direct Ministerial allocations and submission based allocations. Round 1, 2 and 3 were heavily oversubscribed, receiving more than $350 million of funding requests.

Round 4 will make a number of direct allocations to prioritised critical infrastructure replacement, small medical equipment and business continuity priorities that are ‘project ready’ that were unsuccessfully submitted for previous rounds.

 

Eligible Projects

Regional Health Infrastructure Fund is available for:

  • Construction, remodelling and refurbishment projects
  • Equipment including: standalone furniture, fittings, medical equipment, engineering infrastructure and plant
  • Information and communications technology
  • New technologies including systems to reduce usage and increase efficiencies of power and/or water

Priority will be given to applications that address:

  • Model of Care redesign to mitigate demand pressures from increasing population and/or changing age profile
  • Need for buildings to be fit for purpose – e.g. moving from low care to high care residential aged services
  • Need for major refurbishment / repairs / replacement of ageing buildings and equipment that reflect infrastructure risk mitigation strategies.
  • Safety and quality of services including compliance with regulatory requirements and reduction of clinical risk.

 

Eligible Applicants

The Regional Health Infrastructure Fund is available to Victorian regional and subregional health services, local and small rural health services, multipurpose services, public residential aged care services, registered community health services, bush nursing hospitals and centres, women’s health services, Aboriginal community-controlled health organisations and publicly funded community specialist palliative care services.

 

Timing

Applications for Round 4 close 16 December 2019.
