OPRE is rigorously evaluating the second round of grants awarded under the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG 2.0) Program through the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation. The 27 non-tribal grantees operate 38 HPOG programs across 17 states. This project, the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation Long-term Follow-up Study, extends the follow-up period for the impact evaluation and the cost-benefit analysis initiated as part of the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation.
To assess the impacts of the HPOG programs, the impact evaluation is randomly assigning eligible participants to either a treatment group that has access to HPOG services or a control group that does not have access to HPOG but can receive other services available in the community (“business as usual”). Short- and intermediate-term impacts on participants are being assessed at approximately 15 and 36 months after enrollment in the study through the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation.
This study will use administrative data from the National Directory of New Hires and the National Student Clearinghouse and a participant follow-up survey to examine long-term impacts on educational progress, labor market, and family well-being outcomes approximately 66 months after enrollment in the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation.
This work is being led by Abt Associates, in partnership with MEF Associates and The Urban Institute.
