Abstract The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program was established by the Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) to provide training programs in high-demand healthcare professions to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income individuals. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded grants to 32 organizations to develop career pathways programs in healthcare. ACF is utilizing a multi-pronged evaluation portfolio to assess the HPOG demonstration projects. This monograph--undertaken under one component of ACF's evaluation portfolio, the HPOG Implementation, Systems and Outcome Project--summarizes the research literature on career pathways (CP) program design and implementation, outcomes and impacts. Career pathways (CP) programs have developed over the past decade as a comprehensive framework of adult developmental and vocational education and supportive services designed to address the challenge of providing post-secondary skills training to low-income and educationally disadvantaged populations.
