The Central Illinois Disaster Recovery Fund is a special community-wide fund formed by The Community Foundation of Central Illinois (CFCI) in collaboration with the Tri-County Long Term Recovery Committee (LTRC). It was formed in response to the natural disasters that impacted Central Illinois in 2013.
The Central Illinois Disaster Recovery Fund will accept tax-deductible donations that will be used to provide grant support to nonprofit organizations engaged in meeting the long-term recovery and rebuilding needs of individuals who have been impacted by a disaster. The LTRC Steering Sub-Committee, through its case management activities, will make recommendations to the CFCI Board of Directors about where unmet needs and funding gaps exist. Grants will then be made from the fund to help address those needs.

The purpose of the Tri-County LTRC is to provide a coordinated recovery effort for persons within Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford counties affected by disasters.
The mission of the Tri-County LTRC is to strengthen area wide disaster coordination through information sharing, simplifying the access to available resources for individuals and families, and jointly resolving cases with unmet needs from disasters. We will:
1. Identify individuals and families with unmet needs in Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford counties
2. Provide case management in order to prioritize how those needs will be met
3. Deliver goods, services, and funds to meet those needs
The vision of the Tri-County LTRC is to prepare the community to get back to normal more effectively and efficiently after future disasters.
