FAQs About the Rental Partnership Program (RPP)
Will I have to pay an application fee or a security deposit on RPP Housing?
There is no application or administration fee associated with RPP Housing. However, the landlord may charge a reservation fee of up to $100 to hold a housing unit. The reservation fee will be applied towards the first month’s rent. If for some reason the service member does not qualify, the fee will be returned.
Can a landlord change the rent based on a service member’s rank?
No, there is an established RPP rate that is not based on rank.
I have poor credit, can I still use RPP?
You cannot be denied because of your credit history.
I have a pet; will I be required to pay additional pet deposits or other associated fees?
RPP does not dictate landlord pet policy. Individual landlords may require additional pet fees.
Am I eligible for housing in the RPP?
All active-duty service members, married or single with a minimum of 180 days remaining prior to EAOS and PRD.
How do I get approved for Rental Partnership Program Housing?
The service member must provide orders and Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) to the HSC. The service member must have a minimum of 180 days remaining prior to EAOS and PRD. If single and E-4 or below, the service member must have approval from the Command to live off-base. The service member must complete a counseling session in person or over the phone with the HSC. When counseling has been completed, the service member will receive a letter of eligibility, which is presented to the landlord, authorizing participation in the Rental Partnership Program.
I am currently in a lease; when can I get into RPP?
It is up to the individual management companies to release a member from their current lease to participate in this program. The service member can participate in the RPP at the end of the original lease term by signing a new lease. If the service member decides to participate in the RPP, the landlord must refund the security deposit within 30 days. Rent would be the negotiated RPP rate.
