Two Mobile Registration Intake Centers (MRICs) will open in Acadia Parish this week.

The centers will be located at:

Church of Christ
328 N Ave B

Estherwood Park
1st Ave

They will be open starting on Thursday, October 22, through Saturday, October 24, from 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The MRICs will be operated by FEMA personnel and will serve as a point of registration and information for eligible individuals and families that sustained damage from Hurricanes Laura and Delta. Additional MRICs will open within the parish in the coming days; details on those will be released when they are finalized.

No document services are provided; walk-up services are provided at local sites to provide initial registration services and limited technical support for current applications.

The centers operate under strict COVID-19 protocols to ensure safety: masks are required for entry, social distancing is maintained.
