Burnet County & the City of Marble Falls Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC)
Burnet County and the City of Marble Falls will be coordinating assistance for our citizens who have been affected by the recent floods. We will be hosting two Multi-Agency Resource Centers (MARC), which is the most efficient way to deliver services to individuals and families affected by this disaster. The MARC brings multiple service providers together in a single location, providing on-site assistance such as clean-up kits, supplies, financial assistance and the opportunity to register your needs for recovery. Citizens will need to bring proof of residence such as driver’s license, utility bill or some other verifiable document of proof.
