Collaborative partnerships between Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) programs and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) agencies build a foundation for empowerment and self-sufficiency through healthcare training and individualized support services.
The Whole Family Approach allows HPOG grantees to support current and future generations of parents, caregivers, and children on the path to economic mobility by aligning child-focused and adult-focused services.
The purpose of this paper is to offer technical assistance to current HPOG grantees and other workforce development projects that serve customers receiving TANF benefits. This paper provides tips on creating and maintaining successful partnerships with TANF agencies and other organizations that serve the same customers as the HPOG grants.
