SFRG Guidance: Army Directive 2019-17

Soldier and Family Readiness Groups (SFRG), formerly known as Family Readiness Groups (FRG), is a unit's commander's program. SFRGs provide a critical link between commander's and their Soldiers and Families. SFRG offers official and accurate command information; connects Soldiers and Families to the chain of command; provides a network of mutual support; and connects SFRG members to on/off post community resources. Commanders can leverage the SFRG to enhance unit readiness. Taking care of people (Soldiers, Families, and civilians) is the Army's top priority.  Army Directive 2019-17 establishes policy changes to fundraising, reporting, and informal funds activities for the SFRG Program.  It further supersedes FRG Program policy currently published in Army Regulation 608-1, Appendix J.
