Disability Services Action Plan

The Health and Human Services Commission is developing an action plan to improve the system and delivery of services for Texans with physical, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Working closely with internal and external partners around the state, HHS will identify opportunities to improve agency coordination to make it easier for individuals, families and providers to navigate the HHS system for disability services. This plan will drive initiatives for the next several years to improve services for people with disabilities with the supports necessary to thrive in the setting of their choice.

Please contact Medical_and_Social_Services@hhsc.state.tx.us with any questions or ideas regarding the action plan.

Listening Sessions

As the first step in developing this plan, HHS staff will be meeting with Texans around the state to gain insight from client and provider experiences and challenges navigating HHS, as well as opportunities to improve. Upcoming public meetings will be posted on this website as they are scheduled, including:

  • Houston – Wednesday, Oct. 9 - RSVP here
  • Dallas/Fort Worth – Monday, Oct. 28

Disability Services Survey

HHSC is also seeking input from people with disabilities and their families, caregivers, guardians and friends through an online survey, open until Sept. 30, 2019.
