RULE §372.251Residency Requirements for TANF

(a) A person must be a Texas resident to be eligible for TANF benefits. A person meets the residency requirement if the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) determines the person lives in Texas and intends to remain in Texas permanently or for an indefinite time.

(b) A migrant or itinerant worker meets the residency requirement if HHSC determines the migrant or itinerant worker lives in Texas, entered the state with a job commitment or an intention to seek employment, and is not receiving TANF benefits from another state.

(c) A TANF recipient who leaves Texas but returns within 90 days and declares the out-of-state stay was not permanent may establish residency for the period the person was out of state, as determined by HHSC, and may be eligible for retroactive TANF benefits for the period the person was out of state.
