To our community partners,
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) has made available funds from Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) to provide assistance to families affected by COVID-19. This emergency assistance is designated to assist eligible families with essential needs during the current state of emergency.
Temporary funding through the Prevention, Retention, and Contingency (PRC) program will allow Cuyahoga Job and Family Services (CJFS) to provide emergency assistance to eligible families through a PRC voucher. While limited funding is available, COVID-19 PRC vouchers will provide assistance with additional food assistance, select essential supplies, and housing costs.
Please share the attached flyers with your networks and assist your clients that are in need with applying for the COVID-19 PRC. Help us get the information into the community by posting the information on your social media and in community newsletters.
Be mindful that the availability of the COVID-19 PRC funds is temporary and based on the quantity of applications received. For questions about COVID-19 PRC vouchers call the PRC Information Line at (216) 987-7392 and leave a message. Please allow 48 hours for a response.
Thank you for your continued partnership and support.
