The Airman and Family Readiness Center

The Airman and Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) provides emergency financial assistance services through the Air Force Aid Society (AFAS) to:

  • Active Duty Air Force members and their dependents.
  • Active Duty Army, Navy/Marine Corps members and their dependents through reciprocal agreements between the respective service relief societies.
  • Air National Guard (ANG) and Air Force Reserve personnel on extended active duty over 15 days under Title 10, USC.
  • Retired Air Force personnel and their dependents on a limited basis.
  • Spouses and dependents of deceased Air Force personnel on a limited basis.

The Air Force Aid Society

The Air Force Aid Society is the official charity of the United States Air Force. The society is a non-profit organization that promotes the Air Force mission by:

  • Providing Worldwide Emergency Assistance
  • Sponsoring Education Assistance Programs
  • Offering a variety of base Community Enhancement Programs

Emergency assistance usually combines an assessment of the emergency situation and an evaluation of the personal budget to arrive at a decision to make an interest free loan, a grant, or combination of both. Some examples are:

  • Rent or mortgage payment to prevent eviction or foreclosure
  • Paying utility bills to avoid being cut off
  • Money to purchase food
  • Emergency Travel due to the serious illness or funeral of a family member
  • Money for a dependent’s funeral expenses
  • Car repair for an essential vehicle
  • Essential dental care
  • Pay/allotment problems
  • Other special situations and unique needs

The Falcon Loan complements the Air Force Aid Society’s standard emergency assistance program. It is a loan of $500 or less that can be used for the following types of emergency needs:

  • Basic Living Expenses (rent, mortgage, food, phone, utilities, gasoline)
  • Vehicle Expenses (payment, repair, insurance)
  • Emergency travel
  • Medical, dental care
  • Child care expenses

The streamlined application process does not require budget information, documentation, or First Sergeant/Commander approval.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is not yet a reciprocal agreement between AFAS, Army Emergency Relief, or Navy Marine Corps Relief Society to process express type loans.
