FEMA centers are opening again in Cameron Parish to help hurricane survivors.

These centers were open for Hurricane Laura victims needing assistance. They were closed for Delta.

FEMA says that the drive-thru registration centers are an easy and COVID-safe way to provide survivors a way to perform initial registration, some technical assistance on current registrations, and to have documents scanned into their case file.

The FEMA registration deadline for Hurricane Laura damages is in two weeks. The deadline is Oct 27. Assistance may include help for repair or replacement of damaged property, temporary housing, rental assistance and grants to help with other expenses such as medical costs, childcare and funeral expenses. To register for FEMA assistance visit disasterassistance.gov or call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585).
