Kansas Health Profession Opportunity Project (KHPOP)

Innovation in healthcare employment

The Kansas Health Profession Opportunity Project (KHPOP) is an innovative approach to providing education, training and employment in the healthcare sector. 

Partnerships between state agencies benefit qualified individuals by expanding opportunity for an improved quality of life through education, while simultaneously reducing healthcare labor shortages and reducing the number of individuals on public assistance in Kansas. 

Individuals approved for KHPOP can receive training tied to high-demand healthcare occupations such as:

  • Biological technician
  • Certified nurse aid
  • Clinical lab technologist
  • Dental assistant or hygienist
  • Home health aide
  • Licensed practical nurse
  • Medical assistant
  • Medical records technician
  • Pharmacy technician
  • Phlebotomist
  • Registered nurse

Who Can Qualify?

  • Current TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) recipients
  • Current SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) recipients
  • Other low-income Kansans

HPOG is a study funded by the federal government which is being conducted to determine how these training opportunities help people improve their skills and find better jobs. During the study, all new eligible applicants will be selected by lottery to participate in these training opportunities. Not all eligible applicants will be selected to participate in these opportunities.
