This reminds me of what we defined the MARC community information format
for, which uses a lot of the MARC bibliographic fields. You could use the
equivalent in MODS for this sort of data, which would mean for a program
you would use <titleInfo><title> for a program name. The subprogram could
be in <subtitle>.

Alternatively you could make a case for using MADS, since this is like an
authoritative form of a name, and consider this a name type=corporate.
Then you could use <namePart> for the main program and repeat it for the
subprogram, subordinately.
