Deadline for Long-Term Recovery Applications is September 1

Two years after an EF4 tornado wreaked havoc in Coweta County in March 2021, the Coweta Community Foundation continues to help local residents rebuild their homes and lives through its Long-Term Recovery (LTR) program, and the application deadline for LTR assistance is September 1.

To date, the Community Foundation has assisted with 244 Long-Term Recovery cases. CCF Long-Term Recovery Director Rich DeWees said, “The $726,047 that has been allocated is amazing to me. Each of those dollars represents a home, a family, and most importantly, a life that has been positively impacted through CCF and long-term recovery.” In addition CCF has awarded more than 40 grants for a total $665,000 in direct funds to our nonprofits and schools.

If you or anyone you know still needs tornado recovery assistance, go to Bridging the Gap at 19 First Avenue and ask for a Tornado Recovery Application. Long-term Recovery continues in Coweta County, and those wishing to assist may make a contribution at https://www.cowetafoundation.org.
