National and Tribal Evaluation of the 2nd Generation of Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG 2.0): Impact Evaluation Design Plan

The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program is designed to deliver high-quality training in the health professions to eligible individuals. A National Evaluation of 27 grants awarded in 2015 as part of the second round of HPOG grants (HPOG 2.0) is currently underway. The National Evaluation will include an Impact Evaluation of the Program’s impacts on participants and its costs and benefits, as well as a Descriptive Evaluation of the implementation, outcomes, and local service delivery systems of the grants.

This report presents a research design plan for the Impact Evaluation.
