New York City Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NYCVOAD) activated on March 20, 2020 in response to COVID-19 and we remain activated. We created the ad hoc COVID-19 Response and Recovery Committee - now called the COVID-19 Long Term Recovery Group - to facilitate increased communication, cooperation, coordination, and collaboration specifically related to COVID-19. The group aims to increase situational awareness, reduce duplication of services and effort, identify service gaps and client needs, and raise and address barriers.
The LTRG has the following working groups which each focus on their particular functional area. Working groups meet separately and they also coordinate with each other during collaborative calls, which include our government partners and representatives from NYVOAD (State).
