Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)
What is EFMP?
The Fort Campbell Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) serves more than 4,500 individuals with special needs. EFMP is a mandatory enrollment program that works in partnership with various military and civilian agencies to provide comprehensive and coordinated community support, housing, educational and medical support, and personnel services to Families with special needs. An Exceptional Family Member (EFM) is a Family member (child or adult) with any physical, emotional, developmental or intellectual disability that requires special treatment, therapy, education, training or counseling.
The following Soldiers with EFMs must enroll in the program: Active Army, U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) Soldiers in the USAR-Active Guard Reserve program and Army National Guard (ARNG) personnel. Enrollment allows assignment managers at Department of the Army Human Resource Command (HRC) personnel agencies to consider the documented medical and special education needs of the EFM in the assignment process. All Family members applying to accompanying a Soldier to an overseas assignment are required to be screened through the EFMP to ensure any special considerations are identified prior to relocation. When possible, Soldiers are assigned to an area where their EFM’s medical and special education needs can be met. This decision will depend on a valid personnel requirement for the Soldier’s grade, specialty and eligibility for the tour. All Soldiers are still eligible for worldwide assignment.
