  • Coordinators are required to complete NSCHC Training and scan this certificate to Texas HIPPY who will keep it in the site file. New coordinators follow this Link to get started and as instructed on the page request a new account.  Once given access to the courses take the NSCHC training e-course. Returning coordinators who have completed the training in the past follow this Link to log in with your existing credentials.
  • Making reasonable accommodation information powerpoint - Coordinators, please review so you understand the purpose and process of making reasonable accommodations.
  • Texas HIPPY will provide AmeriCorps Orientation to all members on an annual basis.
  • In addition to training and support, site visits will focus on ensuring compliance to new and existing requirements, using this Texas HIPPYCorps Site Visit Monitoring Tool. It's recommended to use this document as a self-assessment to prepare for a site visit and place backup documentation in the provided compliance binder.
  • All sites must use this Member Position Description to create your postings for AmeriCorps members and must use a different one for non-AmeriCorps home visitors.
  • Late 17-18 we received clarification from OneStar stating that AmeriCorps members are not eligible for unemployment benefits because they are not "employees" as such. Two back up documents were provided, one from the Department of Labor, and the other from the Texas Workforce Commission.

All sites will use their individual site basecamp project to submit enrollment, monthly time sheets, exit documentation and to communicate in regard to members. You can access fillable forms below by downloading and saving to your computer.
