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 one or more household members. Contact 327-1872 if you have any questions.
Examples of needs covered by PRC funds include:
- Work clothing or equipment
- Transportation, such as car repairs
- Housing-related expenses
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. In general, services are available to:
- Needy families with a minor child
- Pregnant women
- A non-custodial parent of a minor child, if the custodial parent is cooperating with Child Support Services of Clark County.
