Health Professions Pathways (H2P) Consortium was funded with a Round One TAACCCT grant of over $19,613,306 to recruit Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA)-eligible and lower skilled workers to participate in grant-modified or grant-created Healthcare Programs of Study (POS).
“When I started back to school in the Fall of 2012, having not attended a community college before and not being familiar or aware of all the deadlines involved, I missed every possible deadline you could miss from financial aid to signing up for courses. Had it not been for the advice and support of the H2P program, I would have had to wait until the next semester to begin school.”
Defining Features of Project:
- H2P students experienced median earnings gains roughly 60% higher than retrospective students, and they were significantly more likely to be employed at the end of the cohort time period.
- H2P students also had significantly higher quarterly earnings, even when controlling for a broad range of student characteristics and the specific credentials students earned.
- Using rigorous quasi-experimental techniques, H2P students had an estimated 8% greater likelihood of employment and 22% higher wages than retrospective students, both significant differences.
