[ARCHIVED] The PRC Program: Strengthening Families Throughout Fulton County!

PRC Car Logo.jpg

The Prevention, Retention, and Contingency (PRC) Program was established in Ohio to help families overcome immediate barriers to achieving or maintaining self-sufficiency. The program was designed to provide benefits and services to needy families who are in need of help with essential support to move out of poverty and become self-sufficient. The PRC program provides new opportunities to develop and implement creative and innovative strategies and approaches to remove families from a cycle of dependency on public assistance and into work. PRC, by design, has been developed to provide benefits and services that are not considered “assistance”. When a benefit or service falls within the definition of “assistance”, there is a set of consequences for the family, including time limits, child support assignment, and data reporting requirements.

The PRC program provides non-recurrent, short-term benefits that are:
- Designed to deal with a specific crisis situation or episode of need;
- Not intended to meet recurrent or ongoing needs; and
- Will not extend beyond four months.
