MoHealthWINs Grant Success Stories

In September of 2011, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that Missouri was among the first round awardees of federal grants to train community college students for careers in growing healthcare occupations.

The Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program launched a four-year expansion of healthcare education among a 13-member consortium of Missouri community colleges from 2011-2015.

The program, called MoHealthWINs, was aimed at workers who had lost jobs as a result of increased imports, were unemployed or underemployed, and those who were low-skilled or lacked academic preparation for college or career.

Five out of 10 best-paying jobs requiring an associate degree are health related, and individuals with an associate degree earn an average of $435,000 more over the course of their working lifetimes than those with only a high school diploma. The MoHealthWINs grant made it possible for students to achieve “stackable credentials” toward certificates or degrees.

MoHealthWINs served more than 4,200 individuals, many of whom moved into one of four career pathways in high-demand healthcare fields: health informatics, therapeutic services, diagnostic services and support services. Program requirements for certification were aligned with more than 229 industry partners to ensure graduates were work-ready upon employment.
