About Homeport

Homeport is the United States Coast Guard’s enterprise Internet portal for the Maritime Community. It was initially designed to support the secure information sharing requirements resulting from the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA) and to provide information about the USCG’s primary missions.

Homeport has also come to support the Federal Water Pollution Control Act and the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act. Both acts require plans to be filed with the USCG in the event that certain tank or non-tank vessels have an environmental mishap.

To accomplish these goals, Homeport’s secure, role-based environment brings together US Coast Guard personnel, members of the Maritime Community, and other designated individuals allowing them to share information quickly. In addition, Maritime Community members can receive pertinent information from the Coast Guard, submit and edit security plans or vessel response plans, and collaborate in user-specific communities.
