Flood Recovery Support

Capstone Community Action’s Disaster Case Management Program is FEMA funded. This program was established to assist survivors of the July 10 and July 11, 2023 with direct services help and long term help as they recover from that disaster.

Capstone Community Action is here to help residents of nine declared counties with resources as you build your lives post flood.

Capstone's Service Area

Capstone’s service area includes all towns of Washington, Lamoille and Orange Counties along with nine surrounding communities of Granville and Hancock in Addison County; Pittsfield in Rutland County and Barnard, Bethel, Rochester, Royalton, Sharon and Stockbridge in Windsor County.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

  • What is the Disaster Case Management Program (DCMP)?
    A long-term disaster recovery program for people who are unable to manage or navigate their own recoveries.  It is not a crisis response program. 
  • What is the goal of the program?
    To help restore flood affected households to a safe, sanitary, and livable situation, not to restore the home to the state it was in before the disaster occurred. 
  • How do I determine my eligibility?
    This FEMA funded program targets individuals and families whose primary residence or place of work was in the impacted area at the time of the disaster and have verifiable disaster caused unmet need that cannot be met through other Federal, State, local disaster assistance or personal resources.  Households that have relocated due to the disaster may be eligible for services.  Fill out the referral survey linked here.
