How do I begin out-processing from housing? Members should give at least 40 days advance notice of intent to terminate government-controlled family housing upon PCS, separation or retirement. However, if this is a short notice assignment, please contact the Housing Management Office (HMO) immediately so they can schedule your termination inspections. You will be scheduled for a pre-termination and final inspection of your home. The pre-termination inspection is to provide you with important information to help you in meeting final inspection requirements. If you have a copy of your orders, please provide a copy to the HMO. They will also assist you with submitting an advance housing application to your gaining installation if you are planning on living on base at your next location.
For information about out-processing from privatized housing, contact the local Property Management Office.
What housing allowances am I eligible for? Military members are entitled to various allowances to ensure the transition to a new location is as smooth and stress free as possible. For information about your allowances, visit the Defense Travel Management Office website. If you have any questions, contact the local Housing Management Office.
Where can I find an application for housing? If you desire to live in government housing, please submit an advance application for assignment (DD Form 1746) through the Housing Management Office (HMO) at your losing installation with a complete copy of your PCS orders. The effective date of the application is the date you depart your prior installation (including members with TDY enroute) or the date ordered to active duty.
Applications can also be submitted upon arrival during your first visit to the HMO. HMO staff will be able to assist in the completion of the application and will review PCS orders and housing options with you. For walk-in applications, as long as you apply for government housing within 30 days of arrival, you will be placed on the waiting list effective the date you departed from your previous installation. After 30 days, the application date will be the date of the walk-in. Please be sure your application identifies and includes supporting documentation for an impending promotion or gain of dependents so that you can be placed on the appropriate waiting list.
For privatized housing, applications and/or information about the application process for that location can be found on the Property Management Office's website.
