USCG Child Care Fee Assistance is NOW USCG MCCYN (Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood)!

STARTING ON NOVEMBER 29
New families can apply through MilitaryChildCare.com for MCCYN! Follow the steps below under "How to Access MCCYN".

STARTING ON DECEMBER 6
Currently enrolled families can access their MCCYN account through MilitaryChildCare.com. You will receive an email with log on instructions by December 6.

MCCYN (Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood) is a fee assistance program for U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. military families who cannot access installation-based child care due to distance or waitlists. With fee assistance, MCCYN closes the gap between what families would pay for on-installation child care and what they would pay for care in their communities. This makes it easier for families to afford quality child care from local civilian providers.

USCG MCCYN is available to Active Duty USCG Sponsors and USCG Reservists on Active Duty Orders for at least 180 days. If the USCG member is married, his or her spouse must be employed a minimum of 20 hours a week, actively seeking employment, or enrolled in higher-education coursework.*

Hello Coast Guard Families

I hope this post finds you well!

For those I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet, my name is April and I am your new Ombudsman.

A little bit about myself, I am a mother of four and a home educator. I've spent my entire life in the military as a military child, as a service member, and as a spouse. I'm an avid history enthusiast and in my freetime I enjoy exploring local history sites wherever we are stationed.

My role as Ombudsman is to serve as a liaison for our families with Coast Guard leadership and to connect you with resources that support our families. As an Ombudsman, I have confidentiality, which means with few exceptions of concerns of physical harm, I will not repeat any information you share with me to others.

I am honored to be your new Ombudsman, and I hope to be of help to you if ever you may need it.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at:

202-713-6780 or [email protected]

Sincerely,
April

The U.S. Coast Guard is inviting families to Bring Your Children to OUR Work Day on April 22.

Throughout that day, our page will feature 25+ virtual field trips to Coast Guard units around the world. Think of them as guided tours, with an active duty member welcoming children (grades K-12) onto our cutters, helicopters, airplanes and bases. The event is open to both Coast Guard families and the general public, in honor of the work America's parents are doing to help keep the country running throughout the pandemic.

***Month of the Military Family***

During the month of November and throughout the year, we recognize and celebrate our incredible Coast Guard families.
Around the world, military families are waiting by the phone or computer for word from their service member. A child is taking their first step, while their parent serves abroad. Holidays and special occasions are celebrated on alternative days. Spouses are lovingly tending to the homefront. Many are facing hard “goodbyes” and experiencing sweet “hellos.”

Although their days aren’t always easy, they persevere. They stand beside their service member, and during times of deployment, they stay behind. They admirably live a life that many people cannot begin to imagine – exhibiting great courage, strength, determination, and resilience!

And, throughout this journey of military life, they’ve discovered a lot to be thankful for.

THE COAST GUARD 2020 CHILD CARE NEEDS ASSESSMENT SURVEY LAUNCH (ALCOAST 304/20)

The survey can be accessed at:
www.uscgchildcaresurvey.com

At no time in recent history have the challenges of
balancing child care responsibilities with Coast Guard duties and the workplace been greater. The 2020 Child Care Needs Assessment was developed before the COVID-19 pandemic, but it couldn't be more relevant in helping us capture the impacts of child care on morale, retention and performance.

The 2020 Child Care Needs Assessment Survey will be available to Active Duty, Reservists, and Civilians working for the U.S. Coast Guard and will
take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

Supervisors, Commanding Officers, Officers-in-Charge, and Gold & Silver Badges should encourage and make every effort to support participation in the Child Care Needs Assessment Survey by Active Duty and Reservists, General Schedule (GS) and Non-Appropriated Fund (NAF) personnel with
dependent children 12 years old and younger.

The goal of this effort is to determine the availability and affordability of child care services to Coast Guard personnel, to evaluate and understand child care challenges facing our families, and determine the
effectiveness of the current Coast Guard programs and policies that address child care challenges. Analysis of the data will be used to develop a strategic plan, policy and guidance for Coast Guard Child Development Services. While participation in this survey is extremely important to the Coast Guard, participation is strictly voluntary. Participants can be assured of complete confidentiality.

Any questions or concerns about the survey should be directed to COMDT (CG-1112), Child Development Services Program Manager, Renee L. Podolec
at: [email protected], (202) 475-5160.
