The Prevention, Retention, & Contingency (PRC) Program provides
short-term assistance to address discrete crisis situations, not exceeding four months and is dependent upon federal, state, and local funding.
Prevention services are designed to divert families from ongoing cash assistance by providing short-term non-assistance.
Retention services are provided to assist an employed member of the family in maintaining employment.
Contingency services are provided to meet an emergent need which, if not met, threatens the safety, health, or well-being of one or more family members.
