Do I have to give my social security number or legal status to apply?

No. Social security numbers or legal status are not required. However, the program is for Texas residents only, therefore applicants are required to provide proof they reside in the State of Texas.

Will participating in this program affect my government assistance?

No. This program is funded by the State of Texas.  It is not associated, nor will it affect any federal or local government assistance you are receiving. 

Can others in my household receive a device?

If an individual has a different disability from the original applicant, they can receive a different device.

If an individual in the same household has the same disability they are eligible to receive the same device ONLY if they are "Financially Independent"

If a minor has the same disability as the parent who signed the application and is also requesting the same type of equipment that the parent received, the child's request for a voucher would be denied because the child is a minor.

It has been longer than 6 months, and I still have not received my voucher.
