Communication is critical to connect to family, friends, work and school.
DHA provides access to key communications resources for our clients.


Lifeline is the Federal Communication Commission’s program to help make communications services more affordable for low-income consumers. Lifeline provides subscribers a discount on monthly telephone service purchased from participating providers in the marketplace.

Subscribers can also purchase discounted broadband from participating providers. The discounts, which can be applied to stand-alone broadband, bundled voice-broadband packages – either fixed or mobile – and stand-alone voice service – will help ensure that low-income consumers can afford 21st-century broadband and the access it provides to jobs, education and opportunities.

Relay Texas is a service that provides telephone access for people with speech or hearing loss who find it challenging or impossible to use a traditional telephone. Relay Texas agents have special equipment to both hear a speaking caller and read text responses sent by callers using a text-based device such as a TTY, VCO, computer or mobile device. DHA clients who need help communicating with us may dial 7-1-1 for TTY support.
