Army Family Action Plan (AFAP)



If it’s a program or service, IMPROVE IT!

If it’s a policy or regulation, CHANGE IT!

If it’s a law, AMEND IT!

If there is a low cost, creative solution, GET INVOLVED!


AFAP provides our Total Army Family

  • Active and Reserve Component Soldiers
  • Army Civilians
  • Family members
  • Survivors, and
  • Retirees

with a voice in shaping their standards of living by identifying issues and concerns for Army Senior Leadership resolution. Since its inception in 1983, AFAP remains the only such partnership between a branch of the United States military and its constituents.  The needs of the Army community remain in the forefront of Army Senior Leadership. AFAP is the primary tool to communicate the important issues facing Soldiers, Army Civilians, Families, Survivors, and Retirees.

Information provided through the AFAP process gives commanders and leaders insight into current satisfaction detractors, quality of life needs, and expectations of Army constituents. Leadership uses the information to effect changes that improve standards of living and support programs. These changes foster a satisfied, informed, and resilient Army Community.
