The Healthy Oregon Workforce Training Opportunity (HOWTO) Grant Program provides grants to support innovative, transformative, community-based health professional training initiatives in Oregon that will address identified local healthcare workforce shortages and expand the diversity of the health professional workforce.

Proposed projects should:

  • Support greater trauma-informed, ethnic, racial, and linguistic diversity and inclusion in Oregon's healthcare workforce
  • Address health inequities and social determinants of health
  • Expand current and/or develop new health professional training in a local area

Applications may be given priority based on specialty populations and region served by the project, including rural regions.


Applications are accepted from Oregon community‐based educational institutions, consortia, healthcare service organizations, community-based organizations (CBOs), and others seeking funding to help launch new, innovative training initiatives to address documented shortages in specific areas of their local healthcare workforce.
