Franklin County's Prevention, Retention, and Contingency (PRC) Plus Rental Assistance program provides one-time rental assistance payments for eligible families struggling to meet rent or facing eviction as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through PRC Plus, eligible families will receive up to $1,500 in one-time rental assistance per household. Families must reside in Franklin County, have at least one minor child and/or a pregnant person in the household, and have a gross household income between 166% and 300 percent of the federal poverty level in order to qualify for PRC Plus Rental Assistance.
Families with income at or below 165% FPL may qualify for rental assistance through standard PRC (more information below). Franklin County JFS will make the income eligibility determination; you do not need to submit a different application to apply for either PRC or PRC Plus.
Families will be notified if approved and the rental assistance payment will be issued directly to the landlord.

The PRC Plus Rental Assistance Program is in effect June 1 through Sept. 30, 2020 or until funding is exhausted. The program was created by the Franklin County Commissioners and draws from federal CARES Act funds.
