Child Care Aware- Helping Support Our Military Families
Thank you for your interest in our military fee assistance programs. These pages offer you detailed information concerning which programs are available and how to apply. If you do not have access to an on-base child care provider, you may be eligible to participate in the program.
What is Navy EFMP Respite Care?
This program is a partnership between the U.S. Navy and NACCRRA and is specifically designed for Navy families who have children identified as Exceptional Family Members (EFM), category IV or V. This includes exceptional family members whose medical condition requires assignment near major medical facilities in the continental United States, or whose needs are complex and specialized requiring continuity of care.
EFMP Respite Care will help Navy families with children with special needs by providing 40 hours of respite care per month so they can leave the house, go to an appointment, or just rest, while knowing that their child is well cared for.
