HHSCC State Agency Reference Guide & Training Manual

In order to cross-educate state housing and health services staff and further interagency coordination, the Council has published a Texas State Agency Reference Guide. The purpose of the Guide is to address the need for standardized educational resource materials, to be shared amongst State housing and health services agencies, to train relevant agency staff members and increase expertise in both housing and health services programs.

The Reference Guide provides valuable information on those state housing and health services programs which provide community based assistance for persons who are elderly and persons with disabilities. Each program page includes: (1) the purpose and scope of services provided, (2) the eligibility criteria for the applicant as well as the consumer, (3) the geographic location of services, and (4) a reference of where to find out more about the program and contact information for the program administrator.

The Reference Guide (PDF) is also available as a MS Word document.
