We will:

  • Consider each case on its own merits
  • Provide assistance on a personalized and timely basis and with confidentiality
  • Provide assistance in accordance with established policies and procedures

Our Programs

Assistance when an emergency condition arises suddenly, is unforeseen and urgent. One that requires immediate attention to prevent a serious financial or personal hardship on the client.

Coast Guard Mutual Assistance Education grants and loans foster long-term financial well-being by helping Coast Guard families pursue their academic goals through post-secondary education.

Assistance for extraordinary, unexpected, medically required; medical, dental or hospital expenses where a demonstrated financial need remains, after having utilized all available resources.

Loans of $1,000 or less, designed to address immediate, essential financial need while requiring fewer steps and potentially less detailed documentation than the standard assistance request process.

Assistance for clients with a demonstrated financial need, to purchase, sell, or refinance a current or former primary residence, or to establish a household or obtain housing when moving to a new area.

Assistance to help our clients become good financial managers of their income by creating a financial condition to allow the client to live frugally while paying off obligations in a responsible manner.

In the time of a major disaster, CGMA’s initial objective is to rapidly provide emergency assistance for evacuation and cash needed to meet basic living expenses such as food, shelter and clothing.
