Mississippi Registration Centers opened today on the Gulf Coast-

Mississippi Registration Intake Centers opened today, taking care of survivors who have been impacted by Hurricane Zeta and need federal assistance.

Since Hurricane Zeta has been declared a disaster by the federal government, the state of Mississippi recognizes residents may need help applying and registering for FEMA assistance. These intake centers are currently serving George, Greene, Hancock, Harrison, and Stone counties.

The Harrison County location is at the Harrison County Annex on HWY 49. Mississippi Management Agency State Coordinating Officer Todd Demuth said, “These centers are set up to make sure nobody falls through the cracks. The ones that can’t register by traditional means, they can come here and we have people here that can walk them through the process and get them registered. The first thing we’re going to give them is compassion but then we’re going to give them understanding and hold their hand throughout the application process to make sure that they have done everything that they can do to make themselves eligible for any FEMA or federal assistance that might be due to them.”

All registration intake centers are open from 8 to 5 Monday through Friday and on Saturday from 8 to noon. They are closed on Sunday.
