The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program provides education and training to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income individuals for healthcare occupations that pay well and are in high demand. This brief measures HPOG 1.0 participants’ career progress by observing changes in their outcomes in occupational skills and earnings and employment.

Note that this brief describes what HPOG participants experienced after enrolling, but does not establish causality or evidence of effectiveness.
