Health Profession Opportunity Grant
The Health Profession Opportunity Grant was created to provide education and training to low-income individuals for occupations in the health care field that pay well and are expected to either experience labor shortages or be in high demand.
HPOG participants are given the opportunity to obtain higher education, training and support services needed to secure positions that have opportunity for advancement and sustainability, ultimately leading these individuals on a pathway to financial self-sufficiency.
Various HPOG employer partners share success stories and information on what they look for in potential employees and how HPOG participants fill those needs.
Our participants are supported from enrollment to employment.
