The Office of Attorney General (OAG) sends information to HHSC through an interface to:
- notify Texas Works staff about a determination of noncooperation on the part of a Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Type Program (TP) 08 recipient with the child support enforcement program,
- provide Texas Works staff with the information needed to impose sanctions against the recipient's benefits, and
- inform the recipient of the action the individual must take in order to cooperate with the child support program requirements.
When to Prepare
OAG staff complete Form H1708-A to request that Texas Works staff penalize/sanction a TANF or TP 08 recipient who fails to cooperate with the child support enforcement program. Note: Form H1708-A applies only to TANF and TP 08 Eligibility Determination Groups (EDGs).
HHSC receives the information from OAG through an interface, which automatically populates information into the case's Non-Cooperation — Details page. Additional details regarding the sanction request are populated into page-level comments.
Follow TANF policies and procedures in Texas Works Handbook Section A-1142.
