F2 Grants

AFA is investing in immediate solutions to improving the quality of life for our Airmen, Guardians, and their Families through a grant program launched in 2023. We’re excited to execute this pilot program with great enthusiasm and flexibility to help us identify and build even bigger programming.

Applications for 2024 Field Grants Are Open!

AFA Chapters may apply for grants of up to $1,000 to execute programming supporting Quality of Life initiatives for DAF families. $500 will be awarded initially and up to an additional $500 will be provided on a matching basis. Chapters must provide an after-action report which will be used by staff to publicize our mission work in the Field.

Application Details

Approved F2 grants will be provided on a rolling basis while funding is available. Chapters may submit a request through the link above. Successful grant applications must demonstrate how an initiative will directly support Quality of Life improvements for our Airmen, Guardians and their families. Chapters exploring support options can consider Childcare, Education, Healthcare, Housing, Food Insecurity, and Spouse Employment as possible areas of focus. However, we encourage all chapters to think creatively in ways they can improve quality of life for Airmen, Guardians, and their families including issues like food insecurity, morale and professional development.

Recommendations for both grant approval and program support/execution will be provided to AFA’s VP for Member & Field Relations. Notification to chapters will occur no later than 30 days after submission.

Upon completion of the grant, AFA chapters will submit an after-action report which includes an event summary, support financials (both within the grant and additional local funding to show AFA’s full support), pictures and any lessons learned – to include best practices for program execution. This information will be used by staff to highlight AFA’s initiatives to improve Quality of Life for our Airmen, Guardians, and their Families, to summarize the levels of support AFA provides DAF families at all levels, and to highlight successful quality of life initiatives for use at other installations.
