The Army Family Action Plan


AFAP provides Active and Reserve Component Soldiers, Army Civilians, Family members, Survivors, and Retirees a voice in shaping their standards of living by identifying issues and concerns for Army Senior Leadership resolution. Since its inception in 1983, the 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.  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.



The Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) is your platform to voice quality-of-life issues, feedback, ideas, and suggestions. Its the best way to let Army leadership know about what works, what doesn't, and how you think problems can be resolved.  Issues are processed at each level of leadership to alert Commanders and Army leaders to areas of concern that need their attention.   It gives them the opportunity to quickly put plans into place to work toward resolving the issues. AFAP gives Commanders a gauge to validate concerns and measure satisfaction. Results affect legislation, policies, programs and services that strengthen readiness and retention.
