Connecting Care Coordination with Primary Care Pilot Site Expression of Interest - NEW! October 5, 2018

For the pilot phase, we encourage Family Health Teams, Community Health Centres, and Nurse Practitioner Led Clinics within the Central East LHIN’s geographic region to submit an Expression of Interest. 

As a pilot site you will work in partnership with the Central East LHIN to co-design, implement, support and evaluate a model for connecting LHIN Home and Community Care (LHIN HCC) care coordination/system navigation with primary care. A team-based approach will be used that is flexible, adaptable and considerate of the complexity of patients while respecting the existing work environments for both parties including Collective Agreements.

Community Hubs Facilitation Program

The Ministry of Infrastructure is launching a new program and re-launching an expanded version of an existing program to support community organizations involved with developing community hubs at the local level across Ontario. 

Community Hubs Facilitation Program (NEW)
The Facilitation Program supports community capacity building by providing facilitation services to enable the development and operation of sustainable and viable community hubs. The program is intended to augment supports available on the Community Hubs Resource Network - CommunityHubsOntario.ca -  by providing funding to successful applicants to hire a facilitator who will assist with advancing their community hub-related projects.

Details including eligibility criteria and how to apply can be found at: www.ontario.ca/page/community-hubs

Surplus Property Transition Initiative (Expanded)
The Surplus Property Transition Initiative helps organizations and community groups transition surplus publicly owned properties, such as schools, public hospitals or other publicly owned properties to meet community needs. There are two stages to this expanded program.

  • Holding cost stage:
    • provides funding to hold publicly owned properties for up to 18 months that are no longer in use or that have been deemed surplus
    • this gives organizations time to:
      • find partners
      • complete a business plan and
      • secure funding to redevelop the property into a community hub
  • Fair value offset stage (New):
    • provides funding to help community organizations acquire eligible surplus properties at below fair value to support community re-use

Details including eligibility criteria and how to apply can be found at: www.ontario.ca/page/surplus-property-transition-initiative

Applications for both these programs will be accepted beginning May 4, 2018 and interested community organizations are encouraged to submit applications as early as possible. Applicants will be notified in writing once the assessment is complete and funding decisions are made.

Please contact the Community Hubs Division at community.hubs@ontario.ca if you have any questions. We look forward to receiving your proposals to support the development of community hubs.

Le ministère de l'Infrastructure lance un nouveau programme et une version élargie d'un programme déjà sur pied afin d'appuyer les organismes communautaires qui participent à la création de carrefours communautaires à l'échelle locale en Ontario.

Programme de facilitation pour les carrefours communautaires (nouveau)

Le Programme de facilitation favorise le renforcement des capacités communautaires par des services de facilitation qui permettent la création et le fonctionnement de carrefours communautaires viables. Il vise à accroître le soutien qu’offre le Réseau de ressources pour les carrefours communautaires (CommunityHubsOntario.ca) en remettant des fonds aux candidats qui ont été retenus pour que ceux-ci retiennent les services d’un facilitateur qui les aidera à faire progresser leurs projets liés à des carrefours communautaires.
Les renseignements, dont les critères d'admissibilité et la façon de présenter une demande, se trouvent à l'adresse
https://www.ontario.ca/fr/page/carrefours-communautaires.

Initiative de transition visant les propriétés excédentaires (programme élargi)
L’Initiative de transition visant les propriétés excédentaires aide des communautaires à réaffecter des biens-fonds publics excédentaires (p. ex., des écoles et des hôpitaux publics) pour qu’ils répondent à des besoins de leur collectivité locale. Ce programme élargi comprend deux volets :

  • Coût lié à la détention du bien-fonds
    • Des fonds sont remis à des organismes communautaires pour qu’ils puissent détenir, durant une période maximale de 18 mois, des biens-fonds publics qui ne sont plus utilisés ou qui ont été déclarés excédentaires.
    • Cela donne à ces organismes du temps pour :
      • trouver des partenaires;
      • rédiger un plan d’affaires;
      • obtenir des fonds pour transformer le bien immobilier en un carrefour communautaire.
  • Acquisition du bien-fonds à un prix inférieur à sa juste valeur (nouveau)
    • Des fonds sont remis à des organismes communautaires pour les aider à acquérir, à un prix inférieur à leur juste valeur, des biens-fonds publics excédentaires qui remplissent certaines conditions, pour que ceux-ci puissent être réaffectés à des fins communautaires.

Les renseignements, dont les critères d'admissibilité et la façon de présenter une demande, se trouvent à l'adresse https://www.ontario.ca/fr/page/initiative-de-transition-visant-les-proprietes-excedentaires.

Les demandes pour ces deux programmes seront acceptées à compter du 4 mai 2018. Les organismes communautaires intéressés sont encouragés à présenter leur demande le plus tôt possible. Les organismes qui auront présenté une demande seront avisés par écrit lorsque l'évaluation sera terminée et que les décisions auront été prises.

Si vous avez des questions, veuillez communiquer avec la Division des politiques en matière de carrefours communautaires, à l’adresse community.hubs@ontario.ca. Nous avons hâte de recevoir vos propositions pour soutenir la création de carrefours communautaires.
