The Navy's Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) serves military families with special needs. The EFMP is a mandatory enrollment program for sponsors with qualifying family members. Enrollment in the EFMP ensures maximum provision of services to the family throughout the sponsor’s career.
The EFMP includes identification of the family member's special needs, enrollment in the program, assignment coordination, and family support. The Program assists Sailors during the assignment process by addressing the special needs of their exceptional family members (EFM), and ensures they are assigned to areas where they can access necessary resources.
Qualifying conditions include medical (physical, mental, developmental), and/or educational requirements that are chronic (expected to last six months or longer); requirements for adaptive equipment, assistive technology devices and services, and/or wheelchair accessibility.
Call or visit us, and we can guide you through what you need.
