Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) When you arrive at JBPHH you will be staying in temporary accommodations until you move into permanent quarters. TLA is an entitlement to partially offset the more-than-normal expenses incurred during occupancy of temporary lodging. Prior to your arrival, please work with your sponsor to secure temporary accommodations. Your sponsor can advise whether you will reside in an on-base Temporary Lodging Facility (TLF), a local hotel or an off-base TLF-type facility. Vacation rentals are not authorized.
If permanent housing is not secured within 60 days, military members are required to report to the MHO every 15 days for a recertification of TLA. For TLA entitlements to be extended for the next 15 day period, you must be actively seeking adequate housing as the MHO requires a list of the housing units visited and the reason why they were not acceptable. Pet restrictions and preferred school districts do not qualify as reasons for non-acceptance of available housing.
For more details about allowances at JBPHH, please contact the MHO at (808) 448-0856 or (808) 448-6887 for TLA information and Royal Alakai at DSN (315) 448-6887 for TLF information.
