Technical Assistance

An open laptop with chat icons floating above it rests against a pile of newspapers.

The HAT Program also provides technical help in cases where Texans have come into contact with a dangerous substance that results in harm. Upon approval, the HAT Program will take an in-depth look into the case scenario. We will determine whether the unusual health complaint is due to a hazardous chemical exposure.

Assistance is available to:

  • Federal agencies
  • State agencies
  • Local health departments
  • Local governments
  • Concerned citizens
