The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Implementation, Systems and Outcomes Project is responsible for preparing annual reports that describe and document the range of grantee programs, plans, activities, and performance progress.
In its first year of funding, HPOG grantees enrolled and trained substantial numbers of participants—31 grantees enrolled 6,481 participants, exceeding the total projected number of participants for the first year. The programs most commonly offered in the first year of the grant were in the nursing and medical assistance fields—74 percent of grantees enrolled individuals in training programs for nursing assistants and home health aides. Employment of program participants in a health care job related to their training is the ultimate goal of the program. Of the 987 participants employed in any occupation by the end of the first year of the program, 551 had obtained employment in health care occupations.
