The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program, established by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, funds training programs in high-demand health care professions, targeted to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families recipients and other low-income individuals. This report presents findings from the systems change analysis, one component of the HPOG national implementation evaluation. It uses a descriptive and a formal network analysis based primarily on survey responses from HPOG program operators, partners, and stakeholders. The analysis represents one of the first efforts to comprehensively evaluate the systems that can support career pathways–based training programs for low-income adults.
