- Army Family Action Plan
The Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) is your platform to voice quality-of-life issues, feedback, ideas, and suggestions. It’s the best way to let Army leadership know about what works, what doesn’t, and how you think problems can be resolved. We give Active and Reserve Component Soldiers, Army Civilians, Retirees, Survivors, and Family members a primary tool to help identify issues and concerns and shape your standards of living.
You can submit issues at your garrison’s Army Community Service office or to a unit Family Programs liaison. Army OneSource also facilitates AFAP issues online and makes sure your concerns get the attention they deserve. The information you submit gives Army leadership insight and helps foster a satisfied, informed, and resilient Army Community.
AFAP makes a meaningful difference. Since AFAP was created in 1983, over 698 issues have been submitted, resulting in 128 legislative changes, 186 Department of Defense or Army policy changes, and 210 improved programs or services.
Here’s a sample of AFAP results:
- Dedicated Special Needs Space in Child, Youth, and School Services (CYSS)

AFAP offers you, a member of the Fort Bragg community, the opportunity to improve life at our installation and the United States Army.
After you submit your issue, your issue is addressed through the AFAP process. During the year, it is sent to the agency or organization that can provide feedback about how to solve the issue. It is then included among the issues addressed during the annual Fort Bragg Installation AFAP Conference, typically held during the fall. Conference delegates that demographically represent Fort Bragg will discuss and prioritize what they think are the most critical issues. These issues are presented to the Commanding General for resolution.
Here are some tips that will help to make your issue understandable:
- Be specific. You do not have to include great detail, but the more detail you provide the better we can address your issue.
- It is not mandatory that you include your name or email address. However, sometimes we may need additional information or clarification and may need to contact the individual submitting the issue. We are only able to do this if you provide that information to us. A first name and email address would be sufficient.
- Make suggestions for improvements. Your suggestions will help to clarify your issue.
- All issues are considered. However, it may take time for the results of your issue to be seen. You may always follow up on an issue through the AFAP office.
