Air Force Association COVID-19 Response

The Air Force Association COVID-19 Action Team was stood up to monitor the Coronavirus situation and keep our members and their families informed. 

As the number of COVID-19 cases increases, we want to assure you that the safety of our members and our employees is a top priority.

In response to the recent developments, we recommend our AFA Field Leaders and chapters take the following steps to ensure the health and safety of our members, guests, family members.

  • Please check with your local ordinances for the rules and regulations regarding hosting events due to the spread of the Coronavirus
  • Minimize situations in which members could be exposed to the Coronavirus, and please seek alternative means to host in-person meetings such as video conferencing or teleconferences
  • Minimize non-essential travel on behalf of AFA

In addition, we want to remind you of the services available to you to conduct your AFA business electronically.

  • Access your AFA Leader email here
  • Access your AFA Field Leaders resources here
  • Members can still join or donate to AFA on our website

We will continue to monitor the situation and do all that we can to protect the health and safety of you and our DLC staff. AFA will continue to be fully operational and we are here to assist you.

Thank you for all you do on behalf of the Air Force Association.

Supporting Our Air Force Family in Crisis

As with any battle we fight, we will be most successful when we work together. AFA has formed the COVID-19 Airman’s Assistance Fund (CAAF). With a mission to take care of our Airmen of the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Space Force, USAF and veterans, and their families during these trying times, AFA’s COVID-19 Airman’s Assistance Fund will:

  • Provide up to $500 in emergency assistance grants to Airmen or Space Professionals and their families for essentials such as groceries, bill pay, and medical needs
  • Provide up to $1,000 in emergency grants to support AFA Community Partners as they provide support for Airmen, Space Professionals, base operations, emergency first responders, and the medical community during crisis.

Air, Space & Cyber Conference

The Air Force Association is carefully monitoring and assessing the COVID-19 situation daily, and our current plan is to host the event as scheduled.
