As the first major hurricane of the season makes it way towards the United States, the Coast Guard Foundation is activating its Disaster Relief and Response Fund so we can be ready to assist Coast Guard members and families who have been impacted by the storm and any other natural disasters this year.

Through our partnership with the Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers Association (CPOA), we distribute financial relief to Coast Guard families impacted by natural disasters. Once the storms subside, we collaborate with local Coast Guard leadership to provide morale support for the units that responded. This support provides opportunity for repairing and restoring the physical spaces where Coast Guard members live and work, and builds community and health/wellness for those impacted.

If you are in need of financial assistance please download this form, and return to the CPOA point of contact, Randy Reid, Executive Director, via email at

You may email or call (703) 941-0395 with any questions.

About the CPOA:

The Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers Association is unique among service organizations in that it was created by the Chiefs, of the Chiefs, and for the Chiefs of the United States Coast Guard. The CPOA serve Coast Guard through a united network of over 10,000 members and work to advance the interests of its membership through community service, scholarships and fundraising, and by partnering with military and veteran organizations.
