HPOG 2.0 serves NEW students to FM who are TANF eligible or have incomes at or below 200% of the poverty level and are interested in healthcare training. The degree programs HPOG assists with are: CNA/HHA training, Health Studies, Health Science, Human Services, RN, Rad Tech, and Liberal Arts General Studies if their goal is to enter the Nursing or Rad Tech programs. HPOG does not have a designated academic advisor, but has many resources available to students. These include: textbooks, academic supplies, mileage and childcare reimbursement, case management, tutoring, job placement assistance and a designated study space in C.N.A. lab. This program requires all applicants to go through “random assignment”—similar to a lottery. Some will be selected, others will not.
