The Buffalo and Erie County Workforce Development Consortium Inc.’s HPOG Buffalo programVisit disclaimer page offers training for high-demand healthcare occupations to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and low-income adults.
The 2015 Compendium of Promising Practices captures innovative practices that grantees identified as key to their success in serving TANF and other low-income individuals. The practices are indexed by grantee, state, community, type of organization, and job-driven practice component. The HPOG program is a demonstration project designed to build and share knowledge. This compilation of promising practices is intended to support dissemination of insights and lessons learned to diverse stakeholders. A comprehensive evaluation of HPOG is also underway and will provide more information on program implementation, systems change, outcomes, and impact. The goal of the evaluation is to expand the evidence base for improving outcomes for TANF recipients and other low-income individuals.
