    United States Coast Guard - Coast Guard Mutual Assistance: Debt Management and Financial Counseling ProgramCoast Guard Mutual Assistance (CGMA) provides essential financial aid to the entire Coast Guard family, chiefly through financial counseling, short-term interest-free loans, financial grants, referrals, and other related means. Debt Management assistance is intended to help our clients become good financial managers of their income. To become good financial managers, they must first be able to meet their financial obligations. Sacrifice and austerity on the part of the client is essential. Debt Management assistance does not aim to return an insolvent person to an absolutely normal way of life. Debt Management does assist by helping to create the minimum essential financial condition to allow the person to live frugally while paying off obligations in a responsible manner. Debt Management assistance generates sufficient cash flow to permit a livable budget, repayment of debt, and the provision for modest savings to meet future needs. Total debt consolidation loans are not authorized. Examples of Authorized Debt Management and Financial Counseling Assistance:
    • Professional, confidential, financial planning and counseling. Available to all CGMA clients. Applying for a loan or grant from CGMA is not required to receive counseling,
    • Assistance when faced with exceptional financial circumstances and unable to receive financial assistance from commercial institutions.

    United States Coast Guard - Coast Guard Mutual Assistance: Disaster ResponseCoast Guard Mutual Assistance (CGMA) provides essential financial aid to the entire Coast Guard family, chiefly through financial counseling, short-term interest-free loans, financial grants, referrals, and other related means. In the time of a major disaster, such as a hurricane, CGMA’s initial objective is to rapidly provide emergency assistance for evacuation and cash needed to meet basic living expenses such as food, shelter, clothing, etc. In these instances, CGMA uses appropriate modified procedures to provide rapid emergency assistance, including reducing normal paperwork and approval procedures to a minimum. It is CGMA’s policy during these extraordinary times to meet the client’s immediate financial needs with an interest-free loan and then at a later date, when more specific data and information are available, determine whether the financial assistance should be a grant, loan or a combination of grant and loan. Loan Repayment: In these situations, the start of any interest-free loan repayment is deferred until some point in the future. This provides time for the situation to stabilize and for reimbursement entitlements to be determined, allowing CGMA to objectively assess an individual’s true out-of-pocket losses and financial needs. Converting a Loan into a Grant: While CGMA would like to see those affected made whole, even agencies of the federal government and major charities do not have sufficient funds to cover every individual’s actual losses. CGMA’s disaster assistance priority for losses and expenses not reimbursed by other sources is: Priority 1 - Emergency disaster assistance for basic living expenses to prevent privation (lack of food, shelter or clothing) and temporary home repairs to prevent further damage. Priority 2 - Basic household setup/re-establishment, personal property items and other emergency needs. Disaster assistance will be provided in the order of priority indicated, subject to the availability of funds and financial need. CGMA does not provide assistance for major structural loss. It must be recognized that CGMA is not in a position to cover losses due to lack of adequate insurance coverage, the failure of an insurance company to settle claims, or to bridge the gap between pre-disaster property values and insurance recoupment. NOTE: Assistance will normally be limited to $3,000 per client/family. Where a need exists for greater amounts, approval must come from CGMA-HQ.United States Coast GuardUnited States Department of Homeland Security
