    Growing a skilled labor pool is increasingly important in an economy where as many as 80 percent of job openings will require some form of postsecondary education or training. But for many workers — including low-income, working parents — access to training alone is not enough. Low-income people who are balancing work and family needs often need additional supports in order to complete training and transition into family supporting careers. (Author abstract)

    The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program is administered by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. In September 2015, ACF awarded a second round of HPOG grants to 32 organizations, including five tribal organizations. These grant awards support demonstration projects that provide eligible individuals with the opportunity to obtain education and training for occupations in the health care 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 five Tribal HPOG 2.0 grantees. The evaluation examines program implementation and participant outcomes at both the individual and systems level in a manner that is grounded in a community-based participatory research approach. The Tribal HPOG 2.0 evaluation design is descriptive; as such, the results will not attribute causality between HPOG programs and outcomes. (Author abstract)
