Disaster Relief Delivered to Coast Guard Families Impacted by Housing Fire

Posted on November 27, 2019

Coast Guard Foundation resources were deployed to assist eight displaced families within hours of the November 4 blaze that swept through a housing unit at Coast Guard Sector New York.

Immediately, $500 grants were distributed to each Coast Guard member, to cover essential living supplies and clothing needs. Within a week, families assessed their property damage and received grants from the Coast Guard Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund for replacement and repair of their personal belongings and household goods. The Foundation disbursed an additional $12,000 through this program element.

The Coast Guard Foundation's Disaster Relief program is administered through a partnership with the Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers Association.
