  • In the state of Texas it depends on your economic state and how many are in your household. If you are the only person working (and it's only part time) and you are caring for a child - chances are pretty good that you will qualify. You will be required to see a CHOICES case manager who will monitor your job search. The goal is to get you working and get you off the system as fast as possible (because you only have 5 years worth of assistance in a lifetime - the more you use now, the less you'll have for later). If I were you, I'd go ahead and apply. You need the help and Choices can help with childcare, transportation and even work clothes if you need it.
