The Flood Recovery Network has been established as a centralized hotline to ensure customized and timely flood assistance for those Tennesseans who still need help in recovering from the May 2010 flood, officials with the network announced. 

The FRN hotline number is 615-567-3232.

“The Flood Recovery Network offers relief specific to an individual's needs across our community and our region,” Brandon Hulette, FRN director, said in a release. “Recovery efforts for flood survivors needing assistance have been ongoing since last May and will continue over the next year. There is hope."

An official FRN website will be online in coming weeks and will further expand the network’s capability. 

The Flood Recovery Network is a collaborative effort, with the Tennessee Conference of the The United Methodist Church the facilitator. FRN is supported in part by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee flood relief grant funds.

Partners throughout the state’s long-term recovery community are providing aid to flood survivors who call the hotline, from rebuilding houses to providing mental health counseling.
