What is AFAP?

The AFAP (Army Family Action Plan) is a grassroots level process that identifies issues of concern for the GLOBAL Army. AFAP is a program that gives everyone in the Army Family the opportunity to influence his/her own quality of life and standard of living.

 

How is AFAP Accomplished?

Fort Rucker hosts an annual AFAP conference that brings together representatives of the TOTAL ARMY FAMILY. These representatives, serving as conference delegates, evaluate, prioritize and make recommendations on issues that affect our quality of life at Fort Rucker and throughout the Army. Issues are also accepted by the AFAP Program Manager year round.

 

What qualifies as an AFAP issue?

Issues that affect everyone at Fort Rucker or the Global Army are good AFAP issues. The focus should be on improving facilities, changing policy or regulation–issues that make things better for everyone.  Issues may be on pay and allowance, readiness, retention and training, single Soldier issues, PCS moves, medical, dental, schools, childcare, AAFES, MWR activities, and volunteers.

 

What is not an AFAP issue?

Issues should focus on improving the quality of life for everyone and should not be an individual’s “Pet Rock”. Individual having problems with a facility or particular organization should report those issues directly to the commander or manager of that facility.  Another option for individual issues is to go online http://ice.disa.mil/ to make a customer comment about any military installation and their services.
