Welcome to Aviano AB Housing

Aviano Community Arial PhotoWelcome and congratulations on your assignment to Aviano Air Base, Italy. Benvenuto! Congratulazioni per essere stato assegnato alla base aerea di Aviano, Italy.

The Housing Management Office (HMO) is ready to support you in the transition to your new home and community. Use the resources provided to become familiar with the housing options and support services available to you.

You will undoubtedly hear the phrase "You're not in Kansas anymore" as you begin to work through the many nuances of working and living in Italy. Yes, getting settled into your new home can be challenging. Many of the normal tasks you have become familiar with when transferring between installations in CONUS are done differently here. The most important item you can pack, along with your household goods, is a great deal of patience.

When you arrive at Aviano, your first week will consist of in-processing and house hunting. "Right Start" is Aviano's one stop in-processing center. Right Start is managed by the Relocation Assistance Program and normally held at the Airman and Family Readiness Center. You and your spouse are highly encouraged to attend Right Start. Typically on the first day you receive a briefing from the Housing Office. The briefing includes information on Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA), government and community housing, and types of furnishings that are available.

tabHousing Options at Aviano AB 
Government Housing Unaccompanied Housing Housing in the Local Community

Accompanied personnel and unaccompanied personnel E-4 with over three years of service and above assigned to Aviano AB will reside in private rental housing on the economy as there is no traditional government housing on base.

Units leased through the Government Rental Housing Program (GRHP) are located within the surrounding communities and made available only to Key and Essential personnel as identified by the 31 FW/CC. Under the GRHP program, all traditional family housing rules apply.

Applying for GRHP Housing (Key and Essential only)
To apply for GRHP housing, submit an advance application for assignment
(DD Form 1746) through the HMO at your losing installation and attach a complete copy of your PCS orders. Make sure your application identifies and includes supporting documentation for an impending promotion or gain of dependent so you can be placed on the appropriate waiting list.

Per AF policy, no more than two companion animals are allowed in GRHP housing. Residents may not own dogs of any breed (including a mixed breed) deemed "aggressive or potentially aggressive" unless the dog is a certified military working dog being boarded by its handler/trainer. Exceptions to this policy must be submitted in writing to the HMO for approval by the 31 MSG/CC.

For purposes of this policy, aggressive or potentially aggressive breeds are defined as a Pit Bull (American Staffordshire Bull Terrier or English Staffordshire Bull Terrier), Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher, Chow and wolf hybrids. Prohibition also extends to other breeds of dogs or individual dogs that demonstrate or are known to demonstrate a propensity for dominant or aggressive behavior as indicated by any of the following type of behaviors:
- Unprovoked barking, growling or snarling at people approaching the animal
- Aggressively running along a fence line when people are present
- Biting or scratching people
- Escaping confinement or restriction to chase people

Additionally, residents may not own exotic animals such as, but not limited to, reptiles, rodents (other than hamsters and guinea pigs), ferrets, hedgehogs, skunks, rats, raccoons, squirrels, pot bellied pigs, monkeys, arachnids, or any farm animal.

Personal Property Insurance
While personal property insurance is not mandatory, it is highly encouraged. We recommend that you obtain legal liability and personal property insurance for your possessions and choose the options and amounts that best fit your needs and lifestyle.

There are several types of insurance members may purchase to protect their property and tenant rights: personal property, liability, pet insurance and legal representation. We strongly recommend that you consider purchasing renters liability insurance to cover your personal property and damages to your rental home in case of fire or other major loss.
