Healthcare Profession Opportunity Grant (HPOG)

The Health Profession Opportunity Grant (HPOG) is a demonstration project funded by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The primary goals of this project are to:

  1. Provide education and training to low-income individuals for occupations in healthcare that pay well; and
  2. Learn what kinds of education and training programs work.

Email Susan Scarangella at to learn more about participating in the project and healthcare training opportunities that are available. HPOG Orientation Sessions are held regularly.
