Blaine Recovery
Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC)
MARC's are typically stood up in a physical location in the wake of a natural disaster.

The MARC provides a single location where those affected by the disaster can go to learn about and get disaster related assistance.

The COVID-19 crisis does not allow a physical location so the Blaine Recovery team has set up a Virtual MARC. The website includes sections for Personal Recovery Resources and Business Recovery Resources and is available in English and Spanish.
