  • a Workforce Solutions Office stating that at least one family member is or has been receiving TANF, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, or subsidized child care
  • the Texas Health and Human Services Commission stating that at least one family member has received or is currently receiving TANF, SNAP benefits, Medicaid, or CHIP
  • the school district stating that at least one family member is participating in the free or reduced-priced meal service based on an individualized eligibility determination
  • the local county office stating that at least one family member is receiving Women, Infants, and Children services
  • a public housing authority stating that the participant receives public housing assistance
 
Region 6 AED offers classes in these areas in the seven counties of the Workforce Solutions Brazos Valley (WSBV) and oversees the implementation of these classes in the 13 counties of the Gulf Coast Workforce Board/Houston-Galveston Area Council (HGAC).
