Relocation Readiness

Are you Moving?

Whether it's your first military move or your fifteenth, the Relocation Readiness Program can help you get organized, make smart financial decisions, understand your allowances and manage stress. Visit your local ACS and talk with the Relocation Readiness Program Manager. If you are not near an installation or just love to absorb good information, click on the link below and use these resources, tools and articles to make your next move a smooth one.

 



Total Army Sponsorship Program (TASP)

Are you about to make a PCS move? If so, then you should request a sponsor at your new duty station. Sponsors serve as your "representative" before you arrive, provide information to you, and show you around upon your arrival.

If you are going to Europe or Korea, you can request a sponsor online. Simply visit the sponsorship site for Europe or Korea.
Europe:  https://www.updb.hqusareur.army.mil
Korea: http://8tharmy.korea.army.mil/g1_ag/g1/eusa_csp/csp_website.pdf
Additional information for Korea if needed can be found at http://8tharmy.korea.army.mil/g1_ag/NewsandInfo/Sponsorship_Information.htm

If you are going elsewhere, you should check the gaining installation's web site and the gaining unit's site to determine if they offer online sponsorship requests. If not, you will have to apply for sponsorship using DA Form 5434. You will have a chance to complete this form at your reassignment briefing or your unit S-1 Shop should be able to provide guidance. Once completed, you should send the form to your local Installation TASP Liaison to process.

If you make a move and do not have a sponsor before the move, you can request a "reactionary" sponsor to provide assistance after reaching your new installation.

Sponsorship is key to a military family’s successful move. It helps create unit cohesion and a smoother transition to a new installation and community. Recognizing the importance of successful sponsorship, the Department of Defense, in conjunction with the military services, created the Electronic Sponsorship Application & Training (eSAT) to bring standardized sponsorship training to all appointed unit sponsors regardless of service branch. Additional Total Army Sponsorship Training Information is available through Military OneSource. Service members can access the eSAT website using their Common Access Card. The application is secure and will provide an official certificate for your unit records.

SMA Raymond F. Chandler III emphasizes the importance of sponsorship.

Leaders can have members of their organization receive sponsorship training and certification online through an electronic Sponsorship Application and Training (eSAT) or if necessary, through their local Army Community Service center.
