The LTN response team (your volunteer team) will utilise existing connections and links to the community to identify families/households that are in need and fit the following criteria for assistance:
• People who have been directly affected by damage to their homes or cars caused by the flooding.
In accepting the grant, the LTN response team accepts responsibility for the recording, reporting, and distribution of the funds in a timely manner with the appropriate information and branding templates. Details will be recorded on the distribution excel form provided and emailed to [email protected]
in electronic form. All receipts will be submitted to the Church treasurer. Team members will represent ADRA and the Church in the highest regard, and the email [email protected]
will be provided to families for any feedback or concerns relating to this response.
Recommend discretionary assessment of family needs for assistance of up to $500 per family (depending on size of family). Application for further funding to meet ongoing needs is available until ADRA’s funding is fully utilised.
The response to assist families will be timely, with assistance being provided within a 24-48 hour timeframe. Any funds provided to the Church which have not been utilised by the end of the response will be returned to ADRA.
Upon approval, both parties agree to prioritise health and safety when undertaking any cleaning activities in the aftermath of a disaster. This includes ensuring that appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn by all personnel involved. The PPE should include but not limited to gloves, masks, protective eyewear, boots, and overalls. The cost of acquiring the necessary PPE can be covered by LTN funding.
The Church bank account will be utilised to transfer the response funds across to. Any variations to this, must be approved via ADRA Programme Manager – Sally Lavea. Once application is approved, arrangements will be made to transfer funding to the nominated bank account.
