The Texas Workforce Commission announced they will utilize a U.S. Department of Labor $9.1 million award to enhance access to TWC’s Unemployment Insurance services. TWC is dedicated to providing Texans with equitable and timely services that alleviate the financial hardships of becoming unemployed through no fault of their own.

The DOL funds will now be used to finalize and augment previously planned system upgrades. Projects will include data gathering, multilingual system upgrades, in-person identity verification services, and mobile access technology upgrades for UI benefits services.
