DOD/OS RIN: 0790-AI49 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Family Advocacy Program 

The Department of Defense (DoD) proposes to remove internal policy contained in the rule that pertains to DoD employees and military Service members, and will leave only the information that affects military dependents and other civilians. In accordance with statute, the rule also proposes to add content to address problematic sexual behavior in children and youth via a Coordinated Community Response. The ultimate goal of this expansion is to develop the capacity to identify, report, respond, and intervene with appropriate treatment and services to help military-affiliated children, youth, and their families who have been impacted.  Finally, this rule proposes to subsume 32 CFR part 60, "Family Advocacy Command Assistance Team (FACAT)," as a subpart in order to consolidate and streamline rules related to the Family Advocacy Program. When finalized, 32 CFR part 60 can be repealed.
