Learn More About Community Housing Options
It is DoD Policy to rely on the community as the primary source of housing for Service Members eligible to draw basic allowance for housing (BAH). Over 70% of active military members and their families live in the communities that neighbor our installations. To support this customer base, Navy Housing Service Centers provide a full suite of community housing options, cost savings programs, and support services.
Rental Services in the Community
To assist the majority of Service Members and their family members that live in the community, Navy HSCs have a variety of home finding services to help.
Rental Partnership Program
The Rental Partnership Program, or RPP, is designed to provide Service Members and their families suitable and affordable community housing at reduced rates and aid in defraying some of the costs incurred by relocation. To learn more about the RPP, please visit our RPP page.
Is your next destination overseas? Our HSCs maintain a comprehensive list of certified and inspected community listings. You can learn more about our international listings on our OCONUS Housing page.
Our Navy HSCs offer services to support single Service Members that are eligible to draw basic allowance for housing (BAH) (see the Unaccompanied Housing page for details). This includes help finding rooms for rent, roommate finder assistance for finding group homes, and counseling to first time renters.
Home Finding Services
The Navy Housing Service Centers (HSCs) offer services to home owners as well.
Some of our locations have enlisted the help of volunteer realtors to give advice and access to their multiple listing services. The Navy HSC is also the first point of contact for those struggling to keep their home, as we maintain awareness of Federal and local homeowner assistance and relief programs.
Navy Housing Service Centers (HSCs) are dedicated to helping you find the right home for you and your family. Your local HSC provides counseling, listing and lease review services.
Home Finding Services include:
- Home Finding Counseling: We will assess your needs and counsel you about your available housing choices, local Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH)/Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA), utility rates, renter’s insurance rates and other programs.
- Listings Management: We maintain community housing listings (including privatized military housing) at each installation that meet suitability, affordability, and safety criteria for military members.
- Lease Services: Trained HSC staff review leases, provide sample leases and assist in the negotiation of leases, if needed.
