Service Coordination

 

Help the HHSC plan for your future housing needs

 

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is looking to create a Housing Choice Plan for individuals with mental health conditions, substance use histories and/or intellectual and developmental disabilities. The “Housing Choice Plan” is a program where the HHSC provides affordable housing assistance to individuals who meet certain requirements. They need input from members of Texas Children’s Health Plan to be successful.
