Disaster relief still available
I am writing on behalf of the Rutland County Long Term Recovery Committee to share with the community that the deadline for applications for assistance is April 15, 2013. The Rutland County Long Term Recovery Committee (RCLTRC) was formed in November 2011 in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene to assist individuals with unmet needs. Since then, our case managers, who are located at BROC, have helped a number of folks in a variety of ways, including financial. The RCLTRC has local funds available for assistance and is also the vehicle by which the Vermont Disaster Relief Fund can be accessed. Case managers will be in place until August of 2013. The state is making a final push to ensure that all who are looking for assistance have the opportunity to apply before staff complete their term of service. If you are unsure if you are eligible for assistance, we can help figure that out. Please contact the RCLTRC at 786-5952 before April 15. Thank you.
