About the Exceptional Family Member Program

The mission of the Marine Corps Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is to assure a continuum of care for all enrolled families. EFMP will improve the quality of life of families that support a member with a disability. EFMP will ensure that sponsors with Exceptional Family Members (EFM’s) are assigned to duty stations where services exist to support the EFM with access, and availability, to medical and educational services. Enrollment in the program is mandatory for active duty personnel with a family member that has an exceptional need (MCO P1754.4B).

Who Qualifies
