2021 Military Family Support Programming Survey Data Release

The 2021 Military Family Support Programming Survey, presented by Oracle Cerner, provides critical insight into the well-being of military and veteran families and the challenges they face.

The 75-page report offers an in-depth look into military families’ relationships with family well-being, finances, food insecurity, healthcare and telehealth, housing, and transition. The 8,638 respondents were largely representative of the force, coming from all 50 states, two U.S. territories, and 22 countries, and spanning families in all phases of their military journey, from enlisted to veteran and retiree.

At a data release event held in our nation’s capital in July 2022, MFAN convened partners, stakeholders, and military families to share key findings, host a series of panel discussions, and set the foundation for meaningful change.

MFAN designs our research to be actionable. As such, the report has been used to inform, spotlight, and catalyze data-informed solutions where military families need them most. The Military Family Support Programming Survey is the pinnacle of our research portfolio and continues to be a reference point for decision-makers across the nonprofit, public, and private sectors.

“Military families face unique challenges from employment to healthcare to housing. That’s why MFAN is so critical. We need an accurate, comprehensive picture of military families so that we in Congress can make policies that best serve this community.”

– U.S. Representative Seth Moulton (MA-06)
