CDPHP has committed critical funding to the SCCC Foundation to support SCCC’s Health Professions Opportunity Grants (HPOG), a program that provides educational and employment assistance for low-income students being trained for careers in health care. SCCC’s Albany HPOG, located at 175 Central Ave., Albany, has grown since the College first began offering classes and labs there in April 2011. More than 560 students have graduated from the HPOG program, and many have gone on to serve as valuable professionals in the expanding health care field. It is funded through a Health Profession Opportunity Grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Administration for Children and Families.
