The Texas Mother Friendly Worksite Technical Assistance and Support Program (TMFW-TASP), in partnership with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Maternal and Child Health Unit, is pleased to announce a new technical and material assistance opportunity for selected public employers. This opportunity will support selected employers with technical assistance to plan and begin to implement worksite “Mother-Friendly” support policies and programs for their employees who choose to breastfeed.

Consideration for participation in the current opportunity is open to county and municipality governments geographically located within a Texas Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA entities) + certain Texas Micropolitan Statistical Areas ("µSA entities").
