Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)
Understanding EFMP
The Exceptional Family Member
Program (EFMP) is a mandatory
enrollment program that works
with military and civilian agencies
to provide comprehensive and
coordinated community support,
housing, educational, medical, and
personnel services to active duty
personnel and their family members.
The program is designed to assist active
duty personnel during the assignment
process by identifying Exceptional
Family Members (EFM) having special
physical, emotional, developmental,
or intellectual needs. Assignment
coordination ensures families are
assigned to areas where access to
necessary resources will be readily
Components of EFMP
The EFMP supports military families
with special medical and educational
needs. The program has three

EFMP Assignments · Military Personnel Section
Bldg. 460 · 405-739-3616
Enrollment in EFMP is the key to
Family members with special
medical or educational needs,
including a spouse, child or an adult
dependent, should enroll in the
program. This includes family members
who require special medical services
for a chronic condition, those family
members receiving ongoing services
from a medical specialist, having
significant behavioral health concerns,
and those receiving early intervention
or special education services through
an individualized education program
or individualized family service plan.
Enrollment in the EFMP ensures
a family member’s documented
medical and educational needs are
considered during the assignment
process. It also allows families to
receive the support and assistance
they need to navigate medical and
educational systems.
Navigating the System
Locating and navigating formal
programs, services, and informal
supports when relocating can be
difficult. EFMP Family Support can
help bridge that gap, as well as
help families understand available
programs, determine program
eligibility, and apply for benefits
or entitlements. Navigating the
