The two new DRC's opened in Ocean County this past weekend.

While it's not necessary to visit a center to receive assistance, they're helpful for those who have questions and want to speak to someone in person.

According to a press release from the Office of the Governor:

"DRCs allow residents to speak one-on-one to recovery representatives.

FEMA program specialists are available to provide registration and other information, and to answer questions at the centers.

These include mitigation specialists who can provide guidance on cost-effective rebuilding and repair techniques to reduce property damage in future disasters."

Also on hand at DRC's are representatives from the U.S. Small  Business Administration (SBA) who can answer questions about the SBA low-interest disaster loan program, and to help with disaster loan applications.

The new DRCs are located at:
