Our agents are still available and will continue to assist you to the best of their ability, however, to help prevent the spread of infection, effective immediately Carteret County is closing our office until further notice. Please know that these changes are intended to protect the health and safety of our community while striving to provide the resources and services you need. As such, we will continue to offer information, content, and updates.

Stay tuned to this site and on Facebook for more info and updates as they become available. We continue to work with county and state health officials, as well as NC State and NC A&T State Universities, to monitor the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Above all, take the necessary precautions to keep you and your neighbors safe. We thank you for your patience and understanding at this time, and we are committed to continue serving and growing our community.
