The Safe Homes Initiative used a three-step process to ensure homes are free from environmental hazards and in compliance with all federal regulations:
- Screen all active Coast Guard-owned family homes.
- Identify homes that may pose an environmental risk to residents.
- Take appropriate action; update records and HMIS, address any findings or deficiencies, and support families.
The Safe Homes Initiative created a “Housing Tri-P” which is a team who comes together to provide recommendations to leadership regarding residents who may have environmental hazards or safety issues in their CG owned home. The Tri-P consists of leadership from CG-1M (policy), CG-11 (safety/medical), and CG-43 (engineering).
The Coast Guard is committed to communicating with members throughout this process. News and resources are available on this website and will be updated frequently. Additionally, Local and Base Housing Offices (LHOs and AHOs) are available to answer any questions.
We will continue to work together to guarantee safe homes in the Coast Guard. As we do this, we endeavor to aggressively provide customer service to those families disrupted by any necessary remediation, or relocations.
