Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)

What Is EFMP?

The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is designed to provide support to military family members with special needs. The EFMP is a multidisciplinary assignment tool that interfaces with other military and civilian agencies to provide comprehensive and coordinated medical, educational, community, and personnel support to military families with special needs. EFMP documents long-term medical needs (including physical and mental health) and special educational needs of exceptional family members as mandated by OPNAVINST 1754.2D.

Enrollment in the EFMP ensures consideration of the needs of family members in the detailing process.


The EFM Program ensures optimum use of Permanent Change of Station (PCS) money by considering the Navy's requirements, the service member's career, and the special needs of family members.

It is the goal of EFMP to identify family members with long-term needs for special medical and educational services as well as ensure that family members are located at duty stations where medical and special educational needs can be met.
