Only 18,000 spouses use 'New MyCAA'

For those that were around for the disaster that was 'New Coke', 'New MyCAA' seems to have a similar bad taste.  The new MyCAA regulations that went into effect in October specifically limited the number of people who could use this program. 

During old MyCAA, 136,000 spouses signed up and 98,000 used the program in the first six months
Since new MyCAA started, only 18,000 spouses have signed up.

Now, the total military active duty population is 2.3 million according to the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges and according to Military Spouse magazine, approximately 47% are married which means there are 1.1 million military spouses.

So the New MyCAA is reaching 1.6% of the spouse population.  Underwhelming to say the least.

Now part of the problem seems to be that spouses don't know about it.  Also, there may not be many schools like New England College of Business and Finance (NECB) offering a special MyCAA program for ALL military spouses. So we need your help - we need to get more spouses taking advantage of these education dollars to increase the earning power of our military families!
