The QUILT Network is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) Health System Research Fund (HSRF) Program Award, grant ID #255. Funded for approximately 1.2 million dollars from October 2017 to July 2019, the QUILT Network will improve system integration and care quality for Ontario’s older adults across a continuum of settings and levels of care.

Through the HSRF Program Awards, the Ontario MOHLTC has made investments to improve the health of Ontarians. The HSRF provides funding to research projects that aim to advance home and community care, health promotion, and health system performance.

There were 14 successful program award applicants for 2017/18, one of which was the QUILT Network. The competition included both patient and peer review to ensure the research undertaken addresses patient needs while meeting the standard of competitive peer review.
