What is AFAP?

The Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) is an Army-wide program that serves as a platform for Army Issues pertaining to the total Army quality of life. It gives the community a voice to relay what is going well and what is not with how the Army conducts business with all members of the Army including Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve Components, Retired Military, Family Members, Survivors and Civilian Employees. This is a volunteer-based program and is open to all individuals who care about the Army, its Families and the Fort Campbell Community.

How does AFAP work?

The process operates on three levels: Installation, Installation Management Command (IMCOM), and Headquarters/Department of the Army (HQDA). Since AFAP was created in 1983, there have been 117 Legislative changes, 162 Department of Defense or Army policy changes and 178 Improved programs or services/funding. Through this process, issues requiring actions are prioritized, assigned to a lead agency for resolution, and an action plan is established to achieve desired change.
