Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Interim Report to Congress

Publication Date: June 30, 2015


The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) were first awarded in 2010 to 32 grantee organizations across 23 states.  The grantees, which include post-secondary education institutions, Workforce Investment Boards, state and local government agencies, community-based organizations, Indian tribes and tribal organizations, will receive funding through September 2015.  In June 2015, HPOG delivered the HPOG Program and Evaluation Portfolio Interim Report to Congress. The report provides a summary of the significant activities, outcomes and accomplishments of the HPOG program during its first three fiscal years, from 2010 to 2013. The information contained in the report was gathered from an analysis of participant performance, an outcome study of a sub-set of participants and an evaluation of the tribal grantees.  The report also outlines key aspects of the HPOG program, such as its career pathways framework, fundamental program components, employment outcomes and ongoing evaluation and research initiatives.
