HPOG 2.0 Data Released by the Child and Family Data Archive!

The Child and Family Data Archive (CFData) is pleased to announce the release of more data from the Evaluation of the Second Round of Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG 2.0) (ICPSR 38561). This update adds qualitative data from participant interviews conducted during the National Evaluation of HPOG 2.0.

HPOG was created to provide education and training to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income individuals for occupations in the healthcare field that pay well and were expected to either experience labor shortages or be in high demand. Following on a first round of HPOG awards in 2010 (“HPOG 1.0”), a second round of 32 five-year grants across 21 states were funded in 2015 (“HPOG 2.0”).

In-depth interviews with program participants were conducted as part of the Descriptive Evaluation component of the National Evaluation. The goal of these in-depth interviews was to gain insights into the motivations, decision making, expectations, and experiences of HPOG 2.0 program participants. The sample included 153 program participants across 14 local HPOG 2.0 programs. Interviews were semi-structured and covered a common set of topics: career pathways; employment and education histories; experience of the HPOG 2.0 training; managing work, family, and training; and finances.
