New Hampshire Health Profession Opportunity Project (HPOP)
What is HPOP?
HPOP offers an opportunity for motivated, eligible, low-income adults to train for and find jobs in health care occupations in New Hampshire – specifically health jobs that are projected to be in high demand and pay well. HPOP uses an employer-driven model to identify gaps in skilled health care occupations, and to place trained, committed candidates in these jobs for long-term success and self sufficiency.
Attitude counts in HPOP! HPOP is seeking a diverse pool of highly motivated applicants with a range of educational backgrounds, work experience, language proficiency, or previous life experience.
All interested adults can apply.
HPOP offers training/education opportunities in a variety of health fields via established education and training providers/institutions:
• Allied Health
• Long-term Care
• Child Care Health Advocacy
• Health Information Technology
Case Managers work closely with participants to match individual interests and abilities with health occupations that are anticipated to have job openings. Financial support is available for educational expenses/tuition, and supportive services as determined by individual needs. Help with needed prerequisites are available prior to entering a health occupation training program.
A special track also offers an opportunity for current healthcare workers to advance their skill and move up in their health career.
Over five years, HPOP will train a minimum of 1,000 adults, strengthening New Hampshire’s healthcare workforce.
HPOP will operate in Concord, Manchester, Nashua, and the Seacoast Region.
If you or someone you know could benefit from HPOP and are interested in learning more about pursuing a health career, please call 603-410-3347 to register for an upcoming HPOP Information session!
