Helping Families Overcome Barriers to Self-Sufficiency
The Prevention, Retention and Contingency (PRC) Program helps employed low-income families overcome immediate barriers to achieving self-sufficiency. This Program helps families meet needs required to accept a job offer or retain a job as well as emergency needs that, if not resolved, could threaten the health, safety or well-being of 1 or more household members.
Needs Covered by PRC Funds
Examples of needs covered by PRC funds include:
Transportation, such as car repairs
Work clothing or equipment
PRC benefits are available throughout Ohio but vary from county to county based on local needs. Each county has a PRC plan that covers services and benefits available and eligibility criteria. Click here for the Clark County PRC Plan (PDF).
