Lapse in Appropriations Updates
Updated: 1/19/2019 at 1000
The federal government continues in a partial shutdown. During a lapse in appropriations, the Coast Guard continues operations authorized by law that provide for national security or that protect life and property. The Coast Guard stops or curtails mission activities that do not fall into those categories. This website is frequently updated throughout the lapse to provide information to Coast Guard active duty, reserves, civilians, retirees and annuitants on how the lapse may impact them.
