The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a Department of the Army (DA) program designed to assist military personnel agencies in determining assignments for the Service member accompanied by Family members, based on the documented medical and special education needs of the Service member's Exceptional Family Member (EFM). When possible, the Service members are assigned to duty locations where the medical and special education needs of their EFM can be met. It is important to understand that this is dependent upon a valid personnel requirement for the Service member's grade, specialty, and eligibility for the tour. All Service members are still eligible for worldwide and unaccompanied assignments.  EFMP works together with other military and civilian agencies to provide a comprehensive, coordinated, multiagency approach for community support, housing, medical, educational and personnel services to Families with special needs. The overall goal of EFMP is to help Families accompany the Service member to the right duty locations, not to exclude them. Enrollment into the EFMP is mandatory, based on carefully defined rules. The EFMP operates under the provisions of AR 608-75.
