HomeAirman and FamilyRelocation Assistance


The goal of the A&FRC Relocation Assistance Program (RAP) is to ease the personal and family stressors military families experience associated with a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) by providing assistance, counseling, sponsorship training, and education throughout all phases of the relocation process.


The RAP enables ready, resilient Airmen by providing critical information, education, referrals, counseling and workshops for Airmen and their authorized dependents selected for PCS; from assignment notification through arrival at their new installation. RAP contributes to the time-honored tradition and culture of taking care of Airmen by providing relocation assistance to newly assigned Airmen, civilians, and their families, so they become effective contributors to their units, installation’s mission and community.

Relocation Assistance Program

A successful move is not a matter of chance, it is the result of planning and hard work. At the center of these efforts is you, the mover. If you expect a good move, you must play an active role. There are steps you can take and resources available to help you plan and stay organized during your military move. You can access online tools to assist at every stage of the permanent change of station. Two of the most notable are MilitaryINSTALLATIONS and Plan My Move.

MilitaryINSTALLATIONS is a computerized or paper booklet of the detailed information of a military installation.  It includes phone numbers, arrival procedures, and detailed information on health care, child care, housing, moving with a family member with special needs, education, and other critical installation information. Plan My Move is a unique Department of Defense moving tool that connects members and their families to moving resources ensuring a smooth move. See the resources tab on the side for more information.
