Texas Health and Human Services Commission
Created in 1991, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) oversees the strategic planning and budget request process for the state’s major health and human services agencies. The governor appoints an executive commissioner for the entire health and human services system, who in turn appoints a commissioner to each of the health and human services agencies under HHSC’s umbrella. Advisory committees and boards also assist the health and human services system by providing advice and expertise on agency rules, policies, and programs.
