NH Health Profession Opportunity Project
The New Hampshire Health Profession Opportunity Project (HPOP) was a five year, over $12 million, initiative led by the Office of Health Equity from 2010 to 2015.

This effort to increase workforce training opportunities for low-income individuals interested in healthcare occupations had the following outcomes:

  • 1,050 Enrolled in Healthcare Occupational Training
  • 844 Healthcare Training Completions
  • 692 Employed in Healthcare
  • 782 Employed in Any Sector (unduplicated)

HPOP surpassed its enrollment goal of 25% ethnic and linguistic minorities. Project efforts to support the diversification of NH’s healthcare workforce included facilitated Business Advisory Council meetings that addressed matters of diversity in the workplace. HPOP also targeted low-income, underemployed and unemployed NH residents: 11% of HPOP participants were TANF participants and 42% were SNAP recipients. 60% of HPOP participants (unduplicated) reported receiving Public Assistance at the time of enrollment, which includes Medicaid, Section 8, and LIHEAP (Heating Assistance).

The Office of Health Equity would like to thank all our participants, employers, educators, and State and Federal Partners for their contributions to making HPOP a huge success for the State of New Hampshire.
