Mississippi Registration Intake Centers Open to Assist Hurricane Zeta Victims Apply for Assistance

PEARL, Miss. –  The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency will open five Mississippi Registration Intake Centers in the counties that were declared federal disasters following Hurricane Zeta.

These Registration Intake Centers will serve the residents in George, Greene, Hancock, Harrison and Stone Counties as they apply for Individual Assistance from FEMA. MEMA is currently waiting on local approval to open a center in Jackson County.

“Although we are encouraging all residents to apply online or by phone, we know that not all Mississippians have access to internet, computers or even phones. We believe these registration centers will help ensure that every single eligible storm victim has the chance to apply for valuable assistance to help them rebuild,” says MEMA Executive Director Greg Michel.
