The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is an equal opportunity employer and provider of services. It provides assistance and education to low income households to obtain better nutrition.
Contractors who receive funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education Program (SNAP-Ed) are required to take training on civil rights. Under federal law, anyone implementing or delivering SNAP-Ed services must take Civil Rights Training every year to stay aware of their responsibilities to interact with program applicants and participants without discrimination. This requirement applies to all contractor staff and unpaid staff (such as volunteers or interns) and their supervisors, who communicate directly with SNAP-Ed customers and the public.
