  • Individual Author: Meit, Michael; Hafford, Carol; Fromknecht, Catharine; Phillips, Emily; Miesfeld, Noelle; Nadel, Tori
    Reference Type: Report
    Year: 2017

    This report summarizes:

    • the findings from a review of the literature on tribal research oversight,
    • approaches to conducting evaluations in American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities, and
    • strategies and models used to implement programs similar to the Tribal Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) 2.0 Program.

    Additionally, this report describes how the findings from the literature review have informed the Tribal HPOG 2.0 evaluation design. The Tribal HPOG 2.0 program supports demonstration projects that provide TANF recipients and other low-income individuals with the opportunity to obtain education and training for occupations in the healthcare field that pay well and are expected to either experience labor shortages or be in high demand. NORC at the University of Chicago is leading a comprehensive implementation and outcome evaluation of the Tribal HPOG 2.0 Program. (Author abstract)
