How many categories of MWR programs are there?

3 - Mission sustaining, community support programs, revenue generation programs

What is a mission sustaining program?

Considered essential to sustaining readiness, these programs generally enhance and promote the physical and mental
well being of Soldiers. Programs in this category have little or no capacity for generating NAF income and are
supported almost entirely with APFs

Give examples of mission sustaining programs.

Armed forces entertainment, BOSS, gyms/pools, libraries, movies (overseas), nature centers/fitness trails, parks, community recreation centers, sports

What is a community support program?

These programs are closely related, in terms of supporting the military mission, to those grouped in category A. They
satisfy the basic physiological and psychological needs of Soldiers and their Families and provide, to the extent
possible, the community support systems that make military garrisons temporary hometowns for a mobile military
population. These support programs will receive substantial amounts of APF support, but differ from those programs in
category A, in part because of their ability to generate NAF revenues. That ability to generate revenues is limited,
however, and in no case may they be sustained without substantial APF support.

What is a revenue generating program?

These programs have less impact on readiness. They offer desirable social and recreational opportunities. Programs in
this category have the capability of generating enough income to cover most of their operating expenses, but they lack
the ability to sustain themselves based purely on their business activity; consequently, they receive limited APF
support. Chapter 5 addresses funding for category C MWR programs located at remote and isolated sites, funding for
base closures, and funding as a result of special security conditions.

Examples of community support programs.

arts and crafts, automotive skills, bowling, child youth and school services, entertainment, outdoor rec,

Examples of revenue generating programs.

water park, audio/phone retail, bingo, commercial travel, armed forces recreation centers,

leisure-time programs, self-development programs, resale merchandise and services, or general welfare programs
outlined in this regulation.

What is MWR?

The Army MWR program is a quality-of-life program that directly supports readiness by providing a variety of
