Hope Is Where the Heart Is

Our Mission:

The mission of the Vermont Disaster Recovery Fund, a Vermont nonprofit corporation, is to be a fund granting sources of last resort to help meet the unmet long term recovery needs of Vermont individuals and families impacted by disasters. VDRF shall raise, hold and allocate funds through an effective grant process recognized by State and local officials and partner agencies operating under the State Emergency Management Plan.



Our Roots

The Vermont Disaster Recovery Fund (VDRF) was established and is managed by an independent, non-profit organization, the Vermont Long-Term Recovery Group (VTLRG).


This volunteer Board works closely with Vermont Emergency Management (VEM) and the Vermont chapter of Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VTVOAD), which represents national organizations who support on-the-ground efforts and help people impacted by disasters.
