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 38427). This update adds data from the HPOG 2.0 Participant Accomplishment and Grant Evaluation System (PAGES).
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”).
PAGES is a participant tracking and program management system that includes data on participant characteristics, engagement in activities and services, and training and employment outcomes. PAGES also included the activities and supports those grantees offered. HPOG 2.0 grantee staff entered data in PAGES.
