Army Family Action Plan (AFAP):
AFAP provides a way for Soldiers, Family Members, Retirees & Civilians to let Army leadership know what works, what doesn’t—and what they think will fix it. AFAP is the driving force of improving standards of living for all members of the Army Community globally.
How AFAP works:
1. You Tell Us What You Think – We need your input, using submission forms found conveniently throughout the Fort Leavenworth Community.
2. AFAP Listens and Acts – Once an issue is received it is submitted for action at the Fort Leavenworth annual AFAP Conference.
3. Together We Find A Solution – Although some issues take time or are proven unattainable, every issue is reviewed, monitored, and tracked until a resolution is found. Most issues can be handled locally and are sent to the appropriate directorate for resolution. Those issues beyond the scope of Fort Leavenworth are forwarded to the annual Forces Command (FORSCOM) Conference for resolution. If the issue is not resolved at that level, it is then forwarded onto the Headquarters, Department of the Army (HQDA) AFAP Conference.
Army Spouses created AFAP in the late 1970’s as a grassroots idea to improve the standard of living for their Families. These Spouses realized that they would have to get organized to accomplish this. So, they identified problems, suggested ways to resolve these problems, and volunteered to fix them. This was the beginning of AFAP as we know it today. AFAP was officially adopted by the Department of the Army in July 1983 and was published in 1984.
