Allied Health Career Pipeline Program

The Division of Continuing Education and Workforce Development at Eugenio Maria de Hostos Community College of The City University of New York has a second round of the Health Profession Opportunity Grant (HPOG) from the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to train 1071 individuals in its Allied Health Career Pipeline Program. The program is located in the South Bronx and in its satellite site in Upper Manhattan.

Over the five-year project period, the Allied Health Career Pipeline Program will train individuals to become Community Health Workers (CHWs), Health Information Technicians (HITs), Home Health Aides (HHAs), Patient Care Technicians (PCTs), and New York State Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs). The Pipeline Program also offers health-career contextualized TASC™ exam preparation for individuals who do not have a high school diploma or its equivalent.

Students receive supportive services that include case management, childcare, transportation assistance, examination preparation courses, tutoring, enhanced career-focused internships, and job placement and retention assistance.
