Information about Vermont Recovery: The Vermont Strong website has all the latest information about Vermont’s recovery from Tropical Storm Irene. Go to this link to find the latest news, services, resources, and long term recovery groups.
The Vermont Resource Guide offers more than 800 sources of funding or technical assistance to be used by the citizens of communities recovering from disasters. FEMA Long Term Community Recovery (LTCR) has also developed a companion tool to the Resource Guide intended to make it easier for community members to identify federal programs or charitable organizations which provide funding or technical assistance that will make recovery projects a reality. The tool is called the Recovery Project Matrix of Potential Resource Guide Support (RPI) which will accompany the Resource Guide. For a copy of this Guide and additional resources please refer to FEMA Disaster Assistance at the page indicated below: http://www.vtstrong.vermont.gov/RESOURCES.aspx

Green Up to Recover:
Volunteers needed for Irene related clean ups, spring and summer.
Governor Shumlin and his Irene Recovery Officer, Sue Minter, asked Green Up Vermont to officially partner with them. They are excited about what we have to offer through our community networks and widespread public awareness and respect for what Green Up Day and the on-going Green Up effort bring to our beloved state. This year’s Green Up Day will be “business as usual” – cleaning up litter from roadsides and public places, and will serve as a “kick-off” to inspire continued volunteering for Irene related clean up throughout the spring and summer.
