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 is building a statewide network of community-based organizations that can help people use YourTexasBenefits.com to apply for benefits, including food, cash and medical assistance and manage their cases, if approved. This Community Partner Program is a growing network of organizations trained and capable of teaching Texans how to put YourTexasBenefits.com to work for them.
The organizations that become community partners represent a wide range of non-profit, faith-based, local and statewide community groups. As a Community Partner, your organization will work with HHSC to decide what level of service you can provide to your community. HHSC will provide online training and certify Community Partner staff and volunteers that complete the training. Your organization also will get reports from HHSC showing how many people you are helping.
