A Long-Term Recovery Group (LTRG) is a collaborative network of individuals, businesses, faith-based and nonprofit organizations, philanthropic funders, and other recovery partners who work together to provide the money, volunteers and materials needed to address unmet disaster survivor needs.
LTRGs are as varied in their structure as are the communities in which they work. The personality and operations of each group is unique and reflects local needs, available resources, cultural diversity, leadership style, and community support. No matter how a group is structured or what it calls itself, the goal is the same: to unite recovery resources with community needs in order to ensure that the most vulnerable in the community recover from disaster.
LTRGs work in collaboration with local government.
