Evaluation of Tribal Health Profession
Opportunities Grants (HPOG)

NORC, in partnership with the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) and Red Star Innovations, has designed an evaluation of the Tribal Health Professions Opportunities Grant (HPOG) program. This project, for the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), will provide a comprehensive evaluation of the design, implementation, and outcomes of five HPOG grants aimed at improving the strength and diversity of the tribal health professional workforce and addressing the significant disparities in health care access experienced by tribal communities. Throughout the project performance period NORC will provide grantees technical assistance to ensure project operations data are consistent and of high quality; gather extensive qualitative data through site visits with grantees; and disseminate project findings in a format that is useful to ACF, grantees, and the larger tribal community.
