Sarasota County Long Term Recovery Group



What is a Long Term Recovery Group?

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.


Sarasota County Long Term Recovery Group Mission Statement

The Sarasota County Long Term Recovery Group works to strengthen area-wide disaster coordination
through preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation.

 Community Needs Assessments

Sarasota County Long Term Recovery Group is partnering with World Renew to
host several meetings to identify and address unmet needs after the storm. 


Join our Efforts!

Community members, leaders, and stakeholders with expertise and passion for helping Sarasota County recover from the devastation of Hurricane Ian are encouraged to join the Sarasota County Long Term Recovery Group. As Sarasota County moves into the long-term recovery phase our community is relying on us to be strategic and collaborative in our approach. By establishing a Long Term Recovery Group (LTRG) we can achieve just that! Our community rallied in the most impressive ways to meet the short-term needs of basic necessities right after the hurricane and we  rallied once again to meet the long-term needs of our community!


Attend our next Community Meeting! 

Community meetings are held on the last Friday of each month at 9:00 AM EST via Zoom.
