Community Partner Program
The Texas Health and Human Services Commission is modernizing the state’s eligibility system to promote efficiency and better serve those applying for, and using state benefits. As part of this effort, HHSC is partnering with community based organizations to help people learn how they can get the most out of HHSC’s online eligibility portal, YourTexasBenefits.com. To support this effort, HHSC built a statewide network of community-based organization’s that can help people use YourTexasBenefits.com to apply for benefits, including food, cash and medical assistance and manage their cases, if approved. The Community Partner Program is a growing network of organizations trained and capable of teaching Texans how to put YourTexasBenefits.com to work for them.
