About Army Family Action Plan


The Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) is input (concerning family issues) from the people of the Army to Army leadership. The Army’s leaders have recognized that to have a quality Army, you must be satisfied with the Army way of life. AFAP is a process that lets soldiers and families say what’s working, what isn’t, and what they think will fix it. It alerts commanders and Army leaders to areas of concern that need their attention, and also gives them the opportunity to quickly put plans into place to begin resolving the issues. AFAP also-

  • Gives commanders a gauge to validate concerns and measure satisfaction.
  • Enhances Army’s corporate image.
  • Helps retain the best and brightest.
  • Results in legislation, policies, programs, and services that strengthen readiness and retention.
  • Safeguards well-being.

Since you are in the Army, you can become an AFAP participant-

  • If you are a commander, you can support a strong AFAP program in your community and you can draw on the real-time quality of life information AFAP provides.
  • If you are a soldier (active or reserve), retiree, civilian, or family member you can be part of the AFAP program in the following ways:
    • Be a delegate and share your good ideas.
    • Volunteer to help with a conference, assist with the program, or be a member of the local AFAP Advisory Committee.
    • Become familiar with current AFAP issues, tell people what’s happening, and get them energized to promote Army well being through the AFAP process.

AFAP starts with local AFAP forums, active Army, reserve component soldiers, retirees, surviving spouses, DA civilians, family members, and tenant organizations identifying issues they believe are important to maintain a good standard of living. Commanders resolve local issues at the installation level and update participants quarterly at in process reviews (IPR) which are open to the public. Commanders may forward more difficult issues requiring higher level involvement to higher commands, including Headquarters, Department of the Army (HQDA) AFAP. Delegates come from throughout the Army to address the top issues and propose solutions. The General Officer Steering Committee (GOSC) reviews the progress of AFAP issues on a semiannual basis and is the final deciding authority.
