Healthcare Professionals Opportunity Grant (HPOG)
Coordinated by the Schenectady County Community College, the HPOG partnership provides pathway supports to TANF recipients or low-income individuals (200% of the federal poverty level) to achieve employment in health care positions that are in high demand, pay well and promote economic self-reliance, while meeting regional workforce needs. Participants have access to enhanced academic supports, as well as clinical, apprenticeship and job training opportunities. Education and training is provided by our Community College partners (Schenectady County, Fulton-Montgomery and SUNY Adirondack) and will lead to four industry credentials, eight certifications and eight distinct degrees within the healthcare arena.
SCAP’s Project LIFT will be offering eligible participants free CNA/HHA training at FMCC! Project LIFT continues to provide a no-cost Career Readiness program.
