HHSC Legislative Appropriations Request
"HHSC’s 2020-21 funding request is the culmination of months of evaluation on how we can do more with less. We viewed each request through the prism of two questions: Is this good for Texas? Is this good for our clients? These tough decisions led us to request funding for a range of programs and to group these requests thematically. We also solicited and considered stakeholder feedback when determining which exceptional funding requests to include in our 2020-21 Legislative Appropriation Request. This feedback is summarized and included in the HHS System’s Consolidated Budget, to be published in October 2018. The sections of this administrator statement that follow highlight some of the agency’s greatest needs for the upcoming 2020-21 biennium."
