Disaster Response & Recovery
TAMPA, Fla. (August 30, 2023) - Rebuilding Together Tampa Bay (RTTB), a leader in community revitalization and disaster recovery, is now accepting applications from those affected by Hurricane Idalia for immediate recovery assistance. This includes mucking and gutting, chainsaw work and yard debris removal, roof tarping, and other time-sensitive needs.
Though Tampa Bay was fortunate to escape the brunt of Hurricane Idalia, countless homes have water and other damage from the storm surge. RTTB is committed to providing critical rebuilding and recovery support to impacted residents. This initial effort aims to ensure families and communities have a path to return to safe and healthy homes.
It is important to note - this is the first phase of a multi-phase recovery plan. The second phase will include making necessary repairs and replacements including roofs, windows, HVAC, mold remediation, and more. More information about phase two will be provided at a later date.
Details of the Aid Program:
● Eligibility: Homeowners in need of assistance who were impacted by Hurricane Idalia
● Services Offered: mucking and gutting, chainsaw work and yard debris removal, roof tarping, and other time-sensitive needs.
In addition to the aid program, RTTB is also calling for volunteers and donations. Donations for Hurricane Idalia relief are currently being accepted on our website - www.RTTB.org. Volunteers can fill out a form on our website - www.RTTB.org/get-involved. Corporations wishing to offer employees the chance to volunteer to help on a project site or make donations should contact Justin@RTTB.org
You can help families just like yours who are rebuilding their lives following the storm. Your gift today will directly support much-needed disaster recovery efforts. With your help, we can continue supporting our neighbors across Florida.
