The Coast Guard values its enduring relationships and is proud to highlight the efforts these special communities make to support the Coast Guard families living and serving there.
The “Coast Guard City” designation remains effective for five years. After that time, the city must provide an updated package for recertification describing its on-going relationship with the Coast Guard, including examples of recent programs and projects. The recertification process helps ensure the designation remains accurate and meaningful.
