App for Veterans
HHSC has developed a mobile phone app to give Texas veterans quick access to crisis hotlines and resources for veterans:
State law requires agencies to give veterans, surviving spouses of veterans, and orphans of veterans preference in the selection process when candidates are similarly qualified. Our HR specifically encourages managers to interview veterans for any job openings and states that if skills needed in a job can be obtained through federal government service, they should be accepted.
