Coast Guard Mutual AssistanceServing the men and women of the US Coast Guard since 1924

As winter and the cold weather approaches, we would like to remind our Representatives and clients that CGMA is able help with fuel and home heating costs.

While CGMA typically only helps with past due bills, loans for pre-purchasing heating fuel for the home is the exception. 

This ensures that CGMA clients are not  paying more in the middle of winter when they run out. 

Clients still need to fill out the CGMA request for assistance CGMA 5 (pdf) and budget form CGMA 15 (pdf) , demonstrate a financial need, and bring in a statement showing the cost of the fuel.

The same applies for those purchasing wood for homes heated by wood burning stoves. 

You give valuable time to assist CGMA clients and it is much appreciated!

Please let CGMA-HQ know (703) 875-0404 or toll free (800) 881-2462 or email: if there is any way we can support your efforts as you serve your shipmates through CGMA.
