Long Term Recovery Groups Assist Post Sandy

Sandy victims in affected counties in New Jersey are getting a helping hand from community-based recovery groups that have been set up by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

In many cases Long Term Recovery Groups, or LTRGs, become involved when personal resources, insurance and government grants or loans are not sufficient to meet the needs of disaster survivors.

LTRGs identify long term recovery needs of individuals and families, utilize community volunteers and assist in determining the best strategies.

Currently, there are 16 LTRGs in New Jersey which are made up of representatives from different organizations that can provide resources for the long term disaster recovery process.  When LTRGs are not needed in a particular community, Community Organizations Active in Disaster jumps in to support the recovery process.  This group organizes and coordinates local community resources to help meet the needs of disaster survivors.

For additional assistance, Sandy survivors in New Jersey can visit www.nj211.org or call 2-1-1 or 1-800-JERSEY7.
