Prevention, Retention, Contingency (PRC)

Ohio has established a Prevention, Retention, Contingency (PRC) program to provide services to low-income families to assist in overcoming immediate barriers to employment, and help families succeed in attaining and maintaining self-sufficiency. The PRC program offers an array of assistance to divert families from ongoing assistance by providing short-term non-assistance and helping employed parents maintain employment. “Non-assistance” is defined as a short-term benefit that does not meet recurrent or ongoing needs. The supports provided by this program are limited to non-recurrent, short-term, crisis-oriented benefits. This program is funded through the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program.
