tabHousing Options at Dover AFB 
Privatized Housing Unaccompanied Housing Housing in the Local Community

At DAFB, Eagle Heights family housing is privatized. Hunt Military Communities owns the family housing and is responsible for maintaining, repairing, constructing and managing the community. In addition to your option to purchase and rent housing in the local community, you may now choose to live in privatized housing by signing a Tenant Lease Agreement with Hunt Management Company.

For comprehensive information about the privatized housing community at DAFB, visit the Dover Family Housing website. The website provides information you need to know about the homes and amenities available in the privatized housing community.

Applying for Privatized Housing
Contact the HMO as soon as you know you are moving to Dover, DE. The government housing team will provide you the latest information about privatized housing and details about the application process. The HMO will also update you on any base specific policies regarding residing in privatized housing.

Community Amenities
Eagle Heights Housing is comparable to housing in the local community and provides a wide variety of amenities and support services, including:

- Group picnic areas
- 24-hour-a-day fitness center
- Facility for resident social events
- Lighted tennis courts
- Wading pool
- Tot lots and playgrounds
- Jogging path
- Dog agility park
- 24-hour emergency maintenance

Residents of privatized housing may contact the Eagle Heights Property Management Office to obtain more information about the services available at Eagle Heights.

Paying Rent for Privatized Housing
Similar to living in the local community, you will sign a Tenant Lease Agreement, typically for a 1-year term. Your lease includes a military clause and a lease termination clause. You pay your monthly rent by authorizing an allotment of your BAH, which will be paid directly to the Property Management Office. If your move occurs prior to the allotment start date, you must pay the pro-rated rent directly to the PMO. The Tenant Lease Agreement delineates all relevant rent payment terms and conditions.

Gas and Electric Utilities
At Dover, homes in the community are metered and you will be billed directly for gas and electric service. Dover Electric and Chesapeake Utilities manage your utility bill based on personal consumption. Since homes are metered, you will retain a portion of BAH to pay the utilities directly. The utility allowance is determined based on 110 percent of the estimated average utility cost (gas and electric) for each unit type. The more energy you conserve, the more money you keep. For more information about your utilities, contact the Property Management Office.

Personal Property Insurance
You need to obtain legal liability and personal property insurance for your possessions and should choose the options and amounts that best fit your needs and lifestyle. Before purchasing your insurance, consult the Property Management Office for more information about coverage.

School Information
See the Dover Schools document for detailed information about schools available to Dover AFB.
