EXCEPTIONAL FAMILY MEMBER PROGRAM (EFMP)

Serving military families with long-term health or special education needs


The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a mandatory enrollment program for all active duty personnel with family members with special needs. The goal of EFMP is to assist military families in managing the dual demands of a Navy career and the special needs of a family member. An exceptional family member includes a family member enrolled in DEERS who possesses a diagnosed physical, intellectual or emotional need that requires specialized medical or educational services. Enrollment in the EFMP program is designed to assist the sponsor with assignment to a duty station where appropriate services, necessary to support the family member(s), are available. Installation EFMP Specialists are available to assist sponsors and their family members with the enrollment process, resource, referral, and support before, during and after Permanent Duty Station transitions. For more information about the EFMP program please contact your installation specialist.
