For the event information visit redcross.org/local/colorado.html. The Larimer Long-Term Recovery Group (LTRG) helps to provide coordination between fire & flood survivors throughout Larimer County and available long-term assistance to those individuals affected by these events of 2020-2021.

The mission of the LTRG is to address the unmet needs of those without the resources to rebuild their homes and their lives. The LTRG consists of community organizations in Larimer County that provide assistance to residents affected by the costly fires and flooding through spiritual, emotional, physical, and financial resources regardless of race, creed, color, gender, sexual orientation, or religious preference.

The LTRG is not intended to be a standing agency but rather an umbrella organization of existing agencies and individuals working to provide for the recovery of those impacted by the recent Larimer County fires and floods, and to help the community prepare for similar events that may continue to affect us.
