Oregon Health Policy Board
What is the HOWTO Grant Program?
The HOWTO Grant Program is intended to
expand health professional training within the state to address current and future shortages in the health care workforce in rural and medically underserved areas of Oregon.
The program supports
innovative, transformative, community-based training initiatives that will address identified local health care workforce shortages and expand the diversity of the health professional workforce.
The State of Oregon is committed to ensuring that all Oregonians have appropriate access to high-quality health care across the state. It is therefore important to ensure that the distribution of the health care workforce appropriately meets the needs of all Oregonians no matter where they live.
To help achieve this, the Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Health & Science University have earmarked approximately
$12 million over the 2021-23 biennium for the Healthy Oregon Workforce Training Opportunity Grant Program. This grant program is administered under the direction of the Oregon Health Policy Board in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority and OHSU.
The HOWTO program is not currently accepting new applications. We will announce on this webpage when we reopen for applications—anticipated in Fall/Winter 2021.
