Emergency Assistance (PRC)

Prevention, Retention, and Contingency (PRC) is a special category of assistance established to help with urgent needs which are too expensive for some people–yet mean the difference in keeping or getting a job.

Prevention:
Services to eligible families which will help them avoid an impending crisis that would, otherwise, force them to request ongoing public assistance.

Retention:
Help to eligible families that, without PRC, would lead the breadwinner(s) of the family to lose his/her job.

Contingency:
Services to meet an emergency need which, if left unattended, threatens the health and/or well-being of one or more of the family members.
