The journey to recovery is not yet complete but we believe now is the time to bring the second chapter of that recovery to a close. After 16 months of providing financial assistance to fire survivors, The Mountain Tough Recovery Team will suspend operations to the public for recovery services on December 20, 2018.  Additional assistance will be available through our partners.

We want to help you get back on your feet.

Do you need help?

Mountain Tough Recovery Team was created to continue to provide assistance and support to our neighbors who were adversely impacted by the fires on November 28, 2016.

MTRT offers a three-pronged approach to relief, stabilization, and recovery.

  1. The Case Management Program focuses on case management and financial assistance to renters and homeowners affected by the fires. The goal is to help remove obstacles that stand between the family and their goal of stability and recovery.
  2. The Home Rebuild Program strives to assist the homeowner in their rebuilding effort. Resources include connecting eligible participants to programs whose primary purpose is to help homeowners rebuild. These include volunteer-driven home rebuild ministries, government programs and in some cases, MTRT can provide direct financial assistance to targeted rebuilding needs.
  3. The Property Clean Up Program assists homeowners with the process of cleaning their land and prepping the site so that building can begin.  More information will be released in early August 2017.

To schedule an appointment to discuss your situation and the available resources, please scroll down and complete the brief pre-application form. This will allow a member of MTRT to contact you to set up an appointment. Thank you for the opportunity to allow us to help you.
