Exceptional Family Member Program / Family Travel Office
Our mission is to assist Active Duty, DOD civilians, AGR/Reserve Personnel with family members who have physical, emotional, developmental, or intellectual needs. In addition, EFMP in Europe assists with command sponsorship related to new marriages/new baby(s)/secondary dependents; Housing; Medical TDY’s/Compassionate Actions, Family Travel Screenings covering three continents and in communication with Continental U.S. EFMP offices.
EFMP is designed to minimize the disruptions those needs might have on the Family during relocation, and to give considerations to those needs in the assignment/reassignment process through medical and education evaluations.
An Exceptional Family Member is a Family member with any physical, emotional, developmental, or intellectual disorder that requires special treatment, therapy, education, training, or counseling, and meets the eligibility criteria as outlined in DODi 1315.19 and AR 608-75.
Service Members with Exceptional Family Members are required to register for EFMP and keep enrollment information current. This way the most accurate and up to date family needs will be considered during the OCONUS assignments process.
