Workforce Solutions of Central Texas

Special Programs

Workforce Solutions provides job search assistance and support services to persons receiving benefits who may need job assistance to expedite their re-employment.
Selection into The CHOICES or SNAP E+T program takes place when an individual files a new application for public assistance, and features a Work First policy that focuses on helping families transition to self-sufficiency through connection to the resources they need to overcome barriers to employment.

Choices TANF

Any parent, including a minor parent, in a household receiving TANF assistance, may be required to engage in CHOICES activities in order to continue receiving TANF. Incentives and activities are designed to encourage participants on their journey to gainful employment.

 

Communication and participation are key to maximizing the benefits of services and support that Workforce Solutions has to offer. Please keep BOTH your assigned Specialist and HHSC up-to-date on any change to your job-search status or contact information.

How The Program Works:

1.

Orientation to the CHOICES TANF program. You will receive a form from HHS, which you must bring when you attend orientation. 

2.

Assessment of your needs to include a career plan, job-matching tools, workshops, and the use of the Career Center resources.

3.

Referral to support services which may include:  GED, ESL and higher education and training resources; services for veterans or youth, and more.
