Army Family Action Plan

AFAP-logobThe Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) is one of the Army's most effective tools in managing change and improving the well-being of all who work and support the US Army - Soldiers (all components), Family members, retirees, and DA Civilians.

What can start out as a concern for one Soldier or Family member, can shape the future of our Army and our Sister Services; 61% of all active AFAP issues will impact all the Services. To date, 695 issues have been identified. AFAP has driven 128 legislative changes, 184 Army policy and regulatory changes and 210 improved programs and services. The AFAP mission is simple; help Army leaders address the needs and concerns of the total Army Family. How does it work? The program enlists representatives from around the world to identify issues that affect the standard of living in the Army. This feedback to leaders can result in policy changes that become tangible end-products at garrisons across the Army. AFAP beneficiaries include Soldiers (all components), retirees, Department of the Army civilian employees, and all their Family Members.

AFAP is the ultimate opportunity for you to get your voice heard and make a difference for Families Army-wide. Your involvement can make a tremendous difference. If you would like to support the process, submit your quality of life issues by clicking the "Submit An AFAP Issue" button below. For more information on this program, call (808) 655-4227.

Dates for the FY16 AFAP Conference will be 16 and 17 November 2015.
