Center for Disaster Philanthropy Grants Funds to the DLT for Texas Long-Term Recovery
Funding for Texas Long-Term Recovery
As Texas communities shift focus to long-term recovery following Hurricane Harvey, our team continues to work with long-term recovery groups (LTRG) across southeast Texas. We are excited to announce that we have received funding so that we can continue to support these communities long-term. The funds, provided by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund, will allow our team to continue to support the Texas Long-Term Recovery Groups we are currently working with and to be able to respond to any additional Texas communities that may need assistance.
One of the most exciting aspects of this funding is that we will be about to develop an online searchable database of long-term recovery forms. The forms can be used by LTRG’s in their recovery. This database has been a focus of our team since our formation in 2016. It is an element we all feel will greatly contribute to the success of any community recovering from a disaster. The database will be created by our team members over the next several months. It will be available for communities so that they will not need to track down this information on their own.
We are grateful for the support from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s Hurricane Harvey Fund. Thank you to all of the supporters who made this fund possible. We will share success stories and updates through our website and social media as well as through the CDP website.
