Community Health Capital Programs Policy Operational Framework
The Community Health Capital Programs (CHCP) policy provides a unified approach for the review, approval and funding of community capital projects in Ontario by the ministry. The CHCP policy reduces the number of stages from six in the current model to four in the one for Single Provider and Integrated Facilities capital projects. The new capital planning and implementation process will address the key factors in the current process that have been identified by stakeholders and the ministry in delaying planning and implementation of community sector capital projects.
Under this new framework, the LHIN continues to play a critical role in advising on, and endorsing, the program and service elements of all community capital projects in the early capital planning stages.
Health Service Providers (HSPs) and organizations eligible under the CHCP policy for dedicated capital funding include:
- Community Health Centres (CHCs)
- Aboriginal Health Access Centres (AHACs)
- Community Based Mental Health and Addictions (MH&A) Agencies
- Public Health Units
- Family Health Teams
- Nurse Practitioner Led Clinics
There may be additional community HSPs not specifically named above which could become eligible for capital funding. Please see the Community Health Capital Programs Policy (click here for French) for the capital funding criteria.
