National Implementation Evaluation of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants, 2012-2018

Project Overview

The National Implementation Evaluation of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) is assessing program implementation, systems change, and participant outcomes of the 27 non-tribal HPOG 1.0 programs (those awarded in 2010). The evaluation aims to provide valuable information about the operations of these federally-funded programs intended to improve education and employment opportunities for TANF recipients and other low-income individuals.

The evaluation has three major components—a Descriptive Implementation Study, a Systems Change Analysis, and an Outcome Study—that address the following three major research questions, respectively:

  1. How are health professions training programs being implemented across the HPOG 1.0 grantee sites?
  2. What changes to the service delivery system are associated with program implementation?
  3. What individual-level outputs and outcomes occur?

This work is being conducted through a contract to Abt Associates and its subcontractor The Urban Institute.

The points of contact are Hilary Forster and Amelia Popham.
