BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced the opening of a Mobile Registration Intake Center (MRIC) in East Baton Rouge Parish has been delayed due to Tropical Storm Nicholas.

The announcement came on Tuesday, September 14.

According to the mayor’s office they hope to offer the service on Thursday, September 16.

MRICs are part of FEMA and East Baton Rouge Parish’s ongoing response and recovery mission supporting hurricane Ida survivors.

East Baton Rouge Parish’s MRIC will be located on the second floor of the Main Library, located at 7711 Goodwood Blvd. in Baton Rouge, LA 70806.

The centers are operated by FEMA personnel and serve as a point of registration and information for eligible individuals and families. This resource will offer initial registration services and limited technical support for current applications.

“Mobile Registration Intake Centers are one registration option available to hurricane survivors, especially those without access to internet service or telephones,” said Broome. “We want every eligible survivor to register with FEMA and apply for federal disaster assistance. The centers are just one of a number of ways they can do that.”

These centers operate under protocols to protect the health and safety of registrants. Survivors will be required to wear masks or face coverings when visiting an MRIC.
