Effective October 1st, 2015, Coast Guard Mutual Assistance is excited to announce our new loan program: the Non-Rate to A-School Work Uniform Replacement loan.
CGMA understands that many duties at operational units, particularly for non-rate clients, causes working uniforms to become unserviceable in a short period of time. Enlisted members who transfer to A-School from such assignments often must, on short notice, replace working uniforms that would be unacceptable in a school setting.
Assistance may be considered to help with the cost of replacing non-serviceable work uniforms of active duty personnel E-3 and below who are transferring from an operational unit to A-School. Assistance will be in the form of a loan, not to exceed $700. A budget form is not required, and the loan repayment start date will be delayed until completion of A-School. This program will be included in the next change to the CGMA Manual.
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: HQS-DG-CGMA@uscg.mil if there is any way we can support your efforts as you serve your shipmates through CGMA.
