What is the Safety Grants Program?

The Safety Grants Program is an annual initiative created by The HIROC Foundation, providing funding support toward our Subscribers' innovative safety solutions. The program is funded through profits from our Brokerage - just another way that HIROC gives back to the healthcare system.

The Safety Grants Program aims to drive awareness to the need for greater agility and intelligence sharing within the healthcare environment.

All Subscribers are encouraged to apply and begin funding projects improving the quality and safety of care happening in healthcare facilities.

Since 2018, the HIROC Foundation has awarded a total of $655,000 to 37 Subscriber organizations.
