Privatized Housing Unaccompanied Housing Housing in the Local Community

Housing in the Local Community
The Housing Management Office (HMO) provides all DoD personnel with a personalized service to assist in locating suitable housing in the local community. Although moving is sometimes stressful, it can also be an exciting opportunity to live off base and experience a new location. The HMO will assist you every step of the way to help you find your new home in the local community.

Housing Services
Contact the HMO as soon as you know you are moving. The government housing team will provide you the latest information on the local housing situation and offer complete referral services and relocation assistance to make sure you find a quality place to live. Support services range from helping members understand their lease agreements and the necessity for a military release clause to assisting in resident and landlord dispute resolution, among many other services.

Rental Partnership Program (RPP)
At JBER Elmendorf-Richardson, the HMO supports the RPP to help military members obtain adequate housing in the community. The HMO and local landlords enter into agreements to offer service members special rental benefits above what other tenants receive. Typical benefits might include a waiver of security and utility deposits, no credit checks or application fees, a discount on market rental rates and immediate access to housing.

Contact the HMO for more information about this program. For information about the housing allowances that financially support your move, see Referral and Relocation Assistance.

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, please consult the HMO for more information about coverage.

Realtor Services
JBER Elmendorf-Richardson and the Anchorage Board of Realtors have a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to improve the housing education and awareness to the military families stationed in the Anchorage area. The realtors provide rental, sales and statistical information from the Anchorage Multiple Listings Service, as a gratuitous service. Realtors also present a home buyer seminar at the JBER-Elmendorf office. For additional information please call (907) 552-4439 or DSN: 317 552-4439
