Improvement Grant Program

(formerly Innovation Scholarships)


Hunter New England Local Health District (HNELHD) makes a significant investment in initiatives that seek to improve patient/community health outcomes. In recognising that achieving evidenced-based healthcare and improved patient outcomes is intrinsically linked to the translation and implementation of research evidence and clinical guidelines into healthcare practice, HNELHD is implementing the HNE Improvement Grant Program (IGP).

IGP funding will support initiatives designed to improve patient/community health outcomes through the implementation of priority evidence-based and/or guideline-recommended enhancements to HNE care/service delivery.

The 2019 round has now closed and winners will be announced soon. Further information on the next round will be released by November 2019.
