As part of the outreach to the military bases and community at large, United Way give 15-minute information briefings on the 2-1-1 United Way-Texas Military Family Access Project (TMFAP). For example, information briefings can be conducted during the weekend battle drill assemblies, military fair days, pre-deployments, post-deployments, welcome home ceremonies, and family readiness group meetings.

United Way recently received a $511,000 grant from the San Antonio Area Foundation to expand its 2-1-1 Help Line military support services to eight Texas 2-1-1 call centers, including Houston, Austin, Laredo, Beaumont, Corpus Christi, Victoria, Carrizo Springs and Weslaco. The 2-1-1 military call center services target warriors who have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, and their families, including active duty, reservists, and veterans. Closely following a $320,500 grant awarded in Dec. 2007 for the Texas Military Family Access Project (TMFAP), the new two-year grant will serve as the state-wide model in building the military support capacity in all 25 Texas Health and Human Services Commission 2-1-1 call centers.
