This project provided recommendations for the design of an evaluation to assess the implementation, outcomes, systems change, and impacts of the second round of Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) awarded in September 2015 (referred to as HPOG 2.0). Additionally, this project built and provides ongoing maintenance and support for the HPOG Participant Accomplishment and Grant Evaluation System (PAGES), a web-based management information system, to track grantee progress for program management and performance monitoring, and to record grantee and participant data for use in HPOG 2.0 evaluations. Additionally, the project develops annual reports based on PAGES data that describe HPOG 2.0 program offerings and participant characteristics and outcomes, as well as special topics papers.
This work is being conducted through a contract to Abt Associates and its subcontractors The Urban Institute and AKA Enterprise Solutions, Inc.
The points of contact are Hilary Bruck and Lauren Deutsch.
