The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency launched a Web site recently for the Mississippi Alternative Housing Program. The Web site is www.mscottage.org.
The site will be updated with information about the program, including when contractors are selected for the building process, unit specifications, program eligibility and answers to frequently asked questions.
A call center for the program opened earlier this month and has taken more than 700 calls from Gulf Coast residents who are interested in the program. The call center's number is 1-866-726-MAHP (6247).
Residents who have questions about the program can call the number between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday for more information about the program. A language line will be available for the call center beginning Wednesday for Mississippians who speak languages other than English.
