tabHousing Options at Dyess AFB 
Privatized Housing Government Housing Unaccompanied Housing Housing in the Local Community

Privatized Housing
At Dyess AFB, family housing is privatized.  We currently have two private owners. The two partners are: Hunt Military Communities; (Apartment and Townhouses off-base), and Balfour Beatty Communities; (duplex's and single homes on-base).  Each project owner 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 choose to live in privatized housing by signing a tenant lease agreement with Hunt Military Communities/ Quail Hollow (QH) or Balfour Beatty Communities (BBC).

For comprehensive information about the privatized housing community at Dyess AFB, you may visit each properties site at:  Quail Hollow, and BBC  each website provides information you need to know about the homes and amenities available in each privatized housing community.

Applying for Privatized Housing
Contact the Housing Management Office (HMO) as soon as you know you are moving to Dyess AFB, and they will provide you the appropriate information, and forms required to complete the eligible referral process for privatized housing. 

Community Amenities
Privatized housing is comparable to housing in the local community and provides a wide variety of amenities and support services.

Community features such as playgrounds, basketball courts, dog parks, pools, etc., are just a few of the amenities you will find with our privatized partners.

As a resident of privatized housing, contact the appropriate Property Management Office to obtain more specific information on the services available.

Paying Rent for Privatized Housing
Similar to living in the local community, you will sign a tenant lease agreement, typically for a one-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 that is paid directly to the Property Manager. Rent is paid in arrears, helping to eliminate upfront costs; however, the Tenant Lease Agreement spells out all relevant rent payment terms and conditions.

Gas and Electric Utilities
Currently QH is metered and you will be billed directly for gas and electric.  Since the homes are metered and you choose your provider, you will retain a portion of your BAH to pay for utilities directly. The utility allowance is determined based on 100 percent of the estimated average utility cost (gas and electric) for each unit type. The more energy you conserve, the more money you keep in your pocket; but if you do not conserve you may have to pay out of pocket.
BBC recently completed installing meters for each home, but has not completed the process of finding the average cost for utilities.  Once that process is complete and an average established, you will still forfeit your entire BAH, but if you conserve energy you will get a credit to your account and if you use more energy than average, you will be charged for the extra. For more information about your utilities, please contact the Property Management Office where you reside.

Personal Property Insurance
You need to contact each property to inquire about rental property insurance.  It is highly encouraged that you obtain rental insurance on your personal property in case of damage or theft.

School Information
All students who live in privatized housing in grades K-5 will go to Dyess Elementary (BBC/QH) or Bassetti Elementary (QH).  The middle school is Clack, grades 6-8, and High School will be Cooper, grades 9-12.  All schools are in the Abilene Independent School District (AISD).  Bus services are provided by AISD for all students who are eligible students at both privatized locations.
