Health Workforce Retraining Program Success

We are pleased to announce that the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership (GVEP) was just awarded two Health Workforce Retraining Program/Initiative Grants from the New York State Department of Health.


The Genesee Valley Educational Partnership will use the funds to support the Rochester Area and Western New York. They plan to use the grant funding to train entry-level health care workers for higher-skilled and higher paying jobs.  Their plans also include making emergency grant funds available to LPN students experiencing financial hardship and to make updates to their training facilities in order to maximize student learning with emerging medical technologies.  The GVEP will be helping to alleviate the health care worker shortage being felt all across New York State.

Brockport Research Institute was proud to assist the GVEP with their grant application and will be providing professional development as a part of their grant program. Congratulations!


Congratulations to the Geneseo Migrant Center!

We are pleased to announce that the Geneseo Migrant Center was just awarded a two-million dollar High School Equivalency grant (H.E.P.) from the U. S Department of Education



The Geneseo Migrant Center is a division of the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership and provides a variety of services to migrant farm workers in the area:

“The Geneseo Migrant Center provides a variety of services and opportunities for migrant farm workers and their families on a regional, statewide, and national basis to encourage and assist them in achieving their full potential.”

Funding from the H.E.P grant will allow them to extend their services to migrant students and family members working towards a High School Equivalency Diploma from New York State.

Brockport Research Institute was  proud to assist the Geneseo Migrant Center with their grant application. We will continue to work with the Center as outside evaluators for their H.E.P. program.
