Veterans, Reservists, Active Duty, or National Guard members of the U.S. Armed Forces are eligible for the program, and they are allowed to enroll their adult children, spouses, partners and caregivers. Registration for the 2024 online program is open Nov. 1, 2023 through Feb. 28, 2024. MIFFS will email enrolled participants educational content monthly from March through November 2024.
