This site is intended to provide users with Section 508 Accessibility information.

Our vision for e-Coast Guard includes access to all services and information through the web for all employees and customers including persons with disabilities.

Our goal is to achieve 100% compliance with the web accessibility standards. We have asked our web content providers to develop plans to achieve 100% compliance with web accessibility standards. Because of the varying levels of difficulty for each web site to achieve 100% compliance with accessibility standards, the sites are at varying stages of progress towards our goal.

We have also asked that all Coast Guard web sites include an e-mail address and phone number for contacting an accessibility coordinator.
