Regional Health Infrastructure Fund 22-23 open for submissions

Update: The 2022-23 funding round opened on 17 June and closed on 22 July 2022. Funding allocations are expected to be announced in late September 2022.

The fund provides grants to eligible public health services to upgrade vital health infrastructure, helping people in rural and regional areas to access world-class care, close to home.

One hundred and twenty-two health services and agencies are eligible for funding. The program will deliver a variety of projects across regional Victoria including:

  • operating theatre refurbishments
  • new waiting rooms and hospital beds
  • accessible paths and ramps
  • extra consulting rooms
  • expansion projects
  • equipment upgrades.

In addition to providing funding for projects that are ready for implementation, this latest round will also provide seed funding for ongoing planning or design development projects. This will advance proposals to the next stage of readiness so that they may be considered for successive grant funding rounds.


We encourage all eligible health services and agencies to participate by familiarising themselves with application requirements. Full details can be found within the guidelines available via the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund program page.

All submissions must be made online via SmartyGrants.

Submissions close at 5.00 pm on 22 July 2022.

Online information session – 1 July

A webinar for eligible health services and agencies will be held between 11.00 am – 12.00 pm on 1 July 2022.

This webinar will provide an overview the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund 2022-23 guidelines, with an opportunity to ask questions during the session.

We encourage people involved in preparing submissions to attend to learn about the latest changes and application requirements.
