Sláintecare Integration Fund Application Guide


Thank you for your interest in the Sláintecare Integration Fund. Having received a significant number of submissions, the applications are now in the final stages of evaluation. We had hoped to complete the process by the end of June. However, due to the high number, and standard, of applications, this was not possible. We hope to be finished the process shortly and all applicants will be notified in due course.

Thank you very much for your patience.

With kind regards


The Sláintecare Action Plan 2019 establishes the building blocks for a significant shift in the way in which health services are delivered in Ireland. It seeks to deliver on the Future of Healthcare Committee’s vison of a health system in which care is provided in the right place, at the right time, by the right person.

Budget 2019 provided €20 million for the establishment of a new ring-fenced Sláintecare Integration Fund to test and scale how services can best be delivered.

The Sláintecare Integration Fund is seeking submissions with a focus on prevention, community care and integration of care across all health and social care settings.

Submitted projects must be in a position to be implemented in 2019.

Projects that can demonstrate partnership working and that are co-funded will be particularly welcomed.

Applications are invited for projects that will;

• Promote the engagement and empowerment of citizens in the care of their own health
• Scale and share examples of best practice and processes for chronic disease management
and care of older people
• Encourage innovations in the shift of care to the community or provide hospital avoidance
