|Prevention, Retention and Contingency Benefits
All voucher services are contingent upon availability of funding.
The PRC Program is designed to provide benefits and services to needy
families and low income employed families to help move out of poverty
and become self-sufficient. PRC support is short term and is not
intended to meet ongoing needs. If eligible for PRC benefits, a voucher
is issued for the service.
Who is eligible for PRC?
Families must have a minor child in the home, reside in Lucas County
and meet the income guidelines. Pregnant women in their third trimester
without other minor children are also eligible. Some PRC services are
also available to non-custodial parents of a minor child who live in
Lucas County but in a separate household from the child.
What are the income limits?
The Family’s gross income must be under 200% of the Federal Poverty Limits.
A Family does not need to be receiving other benefits from Lucas
County Department of Job & Family Services to apply or be eligible
for PRC services.
