Rochester Health Professions Opportunity Grants (ROC-HPOG)



Authorized by the Affordable Care Act, the Health Professions Opportunity Grants (HPOG) program provides education and training to TANF recipients and other low-income individuals for occupations in the healthcare field that pay well and are expected to either experience labor shortages or be in high demand.


ROC-HPOG is a network of partners that offer pre-training activities for participants who need to improve basic academic skills or English language proficiency before entering health occupational training. Training is organized as a series of manageable steps leading to successively higher credentials and employment opportunities. Programs prepare participants for college, and/or industry-recognized credentials.
