Exceptional Family Member Program

The Navy's Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) serves military families with special needs. The EFMP is a mandatory enrollment program for sponsors with qualifying family members. Enrollment in the EFMP ensures maximum provision of services to the family throughout the sponsor’s career.

The EFMP includes identification of the family member's special needs and enrollment in the program, assignment coordination and family support. The program assists Sailors during the assignment process by addressing the special needs of their exceptional family members (EFM) and ensuring they are assigned to areas where they can access necessary resources.

Special needs include special medical, dental, mental health, developmental or educational requirements, the requirement for adaptive equipment assistive technology devices and services and/or wheelchair accessibility.  

The Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS) (https://navyfamily.navy.mil/) application provides electronic EFMP enrollment and enrollment update capability (DD Form 2792 & DD Form 2792-1), allows the service member to track the status of enrollment and provides a means to record and maintain EFM information, referrals and individualized service plans. 

The Fleet and Family Support Program is the Information and Referral (I&R) conduit for questions regarding EFM resources in the local community.

EFMP Case Liaison can assist with: 

  • Provide information, referral and system navigation to special needs families.
  • Link families with available military, national and local community resources.
  • Provide non-medical case management.
  • Develop and maintain Family Service Plans (ISP).
  • Partner with the MTF Coordinators to provide information, education and marketing.
