Long-Term Recovery Group of Northern Colorado offers fire, flood assistance

Beginning Sept. 10, case managers with the Long-Term Recovery Group of Northern Colorado will be taking appointments with Larimer County residents in need of assistance after the High Park and Woodland Heights fires and subsequent flooding.

The LTRG-NoCo is made up of more than 50 nonprofit agencies, government organizations, faith-based groups and concerned citizens. Case managers will assess situations, identify resources, and refer residents to possible sources of assistance, including funds from the group itself.

Some funds are available for survivors who have not been compensated from insurance or other sources. Eligible uses of the funds include:

• Health-related issues
• Repair or replacement of primary homes
• Repair or replacement of personal property
• Loss of livelihood
• Temporary housing needs
• Other compelling needs

To prioritize funding distribution, the LTRG-NoCo will consider financial need, documented disability or health need, single parent, older adult, immediate need for safe housing, and other compelling factors. Documentation, as appropriate and available, may be required by case managers to verify need.

To make an appointment with a case manager, call 970-646-8879 or visit the LTRG-NoCo office north of Macy’s in the Foothills Mall (215 E. Foothills Parkway, Suite 1EB) in Fort Collins, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. No walk-ins accepted.

The United Way of Larimer County is serving as the fiscal agent for the LTRG-NoCo. To make a donation or for more information, go to www.unitedwayoflarimercounty.org or call 970-407-7000.
