What are LTRC Meetings?
Robeson County Long-Term Recovery Committee [LTRC} meetings provide an opportunity for diverse stakeholders and the community to work together, learn together, share ideas, and grow together in an environment that focuses developing our county's capacity to effectively and efficiently address ongoing and emerging unmet needs and receive the latest long-term recovery updates related to Hurricane Matthew and the record flooding that followed. The public is invited to attend.

What is a LONG-TERM RECOVERY GROUP (LTRG)?
A Long-Term Recovery Group (LTRG) is a cooperative body that is made up of representatives from faith-based, non-profit, government, business and other organizations working within a community to assist individuals and families as they recover from disaster.
Long Term Recovery Group Models:
Long-term Recovery Committee (LTRC) – a formal organization made up of members of the community it serves; representing business and financial leadership, local media, community and faith-based groups, non-profit/civic organizations and city and county governments. The purpose is to coordinate and communicate the individual efforts of these - by leveraging a limited supply of resources to maximize and sustain the recovery process but individually address survivor needs.
Long-term Recovery Organization (LTRO) – a coalition or organization with formal structure; community organizations working as a single entity to bring resources to bear on the disaster-related needs. The purpose is to coordinate and communicate the efforts of these groups by leveraging a limited supply of resources to maximize and sustain the recovery process by collectively addressing survivor needs.
