The Health Profession Opportunity Grants Program
Also known as HPOG, is an innovative approach in providing education, training, support services, and job placement in the healthcare industry for hundreds of residents in Detroit and Wayne County.
Available programs include:
• Certified Nurse Assistant
• EKG Technician
• Medical Assistant
• Medical Billing and Coding
• Patient Care Technician
• Phlebotomy Technician
Our staff supports our participants and their families to ensure successful completion of healthcare training programs and positive retention of meaningful employment. HPOG looks for participants nearing the end of receiving welfare benefits, with a focus on single moms with young children, and an additional focus on veterans. The goals include 250 enrollments and 150 living wage job placements per year.
HPOG is a five-year grant that amounts to a $10.3 million investment in Detroit Wayne County's health care industry. Not only will participants find living wage employment, but employers will find much needed qualified applicants.
