HCOP Funding Opportunity Announcement Overview Webinar
Presented live on March 31, 2015



The Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) aims to increase the diversity of the health care workforce through the recruitment and training of individuals, including non-traditional students and veterans, from educationally or economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

The HCOP grants enable individuals who successfully complete education and training requirements to serve in underserved communities.

The HCOP grants also improve recruitment and retention rates by implementing programs designed to address the academic and social needs of disadvantaged students who are interested in pursuing a career in a health profession.

The HCOP grant program focuses on three key milestones of education:

  1. graduation from high school;
  2. graduation from college; and
  3. completion of a health professions degree program.
