Committed To Post-Disaster Resilience And Restoration

The Spokane Region Long Term Recovery Group (SRLTRG) was organized in the wake of the August 2023 Gray Road and Oregon Road wildfires in Spokane County.

It was created to coordinate recovery services and resources for individuals, families, businesses, and communities that were adversely impacted. Its focus is on addressing emergency, short-term needs and managing resources so they will be available for long-term rebuilding and recovery.

Harnessing Hope:
Urgent Assistance and Recovery Initiatives

These organizations are addressing immediate emergency needs, including food, clothing, gas cards, utility hook-ups, propane, and RV winterization.

As of November 13, Disaster Case Managers through Salvation Army are available to help those impacted establish a fire recovery plan and access needed resources, including Wildfire Response Funds at Innovia. 

Please visit the Get Help page to see the first steps you need to take when requesting assistance.  Additional information can be found on the specific pages for the Elk – Oregon Road Fire and Medical Lake – Gray Road Fire.
