Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)
The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a mandatory enrollment program that works with other military and civilian agencies to provide housing, community support, and personnel services to families with special needs. The EFMP is a Department of the Army program which functions under the provisions of Army Regulation AR 608-75. It is designed to assist active-duty personnel during assignments/reassignments sponsoring exceptional family members (EFM) with special physical, emotional, developmental or intellectual needs. In a dual military family, both Soldiers must be enrolled. Enrollment is based upon the medical and education requirements of family members of active duty personnel. Enrollment updates are required every three years or if the condition changes.
EFM or parent/guardian:
Complete all referrals and treatment plans
Communicate any significant changes in your condition or treatment plan to your PCM immediately and submit a new DD 2792 when changes to the enrollment status are warranted
Active Duty Service Members (ADSM):
