The Financial Readiness Program offers counseling and training for Soldiers and their families and ensures emergency assistance is available when needed. The misson of FRP is to reduce indebtedness, minimize the need for emergency financial assistance and prevent financial difficulties. Services include classes on money management, credit, financial planning, insurance and consumer issues. We help Soldiers and Army Families live within their means and provide for a brighter financial future.
