Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) is a program designed to give Soldiers, Family Members, Military Civilians and Teens an opportunity to voice their concerns and suggestions on how to improve life and living conditions for all members of the Fort Sill Community. It provides a way for you to let Army leadership know what works, what doesn’t, and how you think problems should be resolved. AFAP is a year round process. Issues are continually being monitored and worked toward resolution at local levels, Army Commands and HQDA.
A few of the AFAP Accomplishments:
- Established minimum standards for Army child care.
- Guaranteed Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for Retirees
- Developed first policy for the Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers (BOSS) Program
- Extended educational benefits for Surviving Spouses
- Toll-Free Wounded in Action phone number and improved communication to families
- Funded Family Readiness Support Assistants (FRSAs) to battalion level
- Mandates state charge no more than in-state tuition rates for military personnel and their dependents
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) rehabilitation program at Military Centers of Excellence
