Applying for Housing

Once you receive orders to Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF), Barking Sands, you should complete an advance application. Submitting an advanced application does not add your name to the housing wait list, however, it does enable a shorter, more convenient housing appointment. 

Navy personnel can get a copy of an advanced Application for Assignment to Housing, DD Form 1746 (see below). Submit the application, along with a copy of orders and service record Page 2 (dependent verification), by mail to PMRF Barking Sands, Kauai, Navy Gateway Inns and Suites (NGIS), P.O. Box 128, Tartar Drive, Building 1261, Barking Sands, Kauai 96752 or another option would be using the Safe Access File Exchange (SAFE) available at: This will work with Internet Explorer, and users will need to have SAFE listed as a trusted site, and have Javascript and cookies enabled.


IMPORTANT!: Within 72 hours of arrival on island, all TLA eligible active duty (except dorm residents) must meet with a Housing counselor at the applicable Housing Management Office to receive a briefing on Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) and Furnishings. Failure to do so may affect your ability to claim TLA. TLA partially reimburses you for the hotel and restaurant expenses while awaiting privatized housing on PMRF or locating permanent off base housing. TLA is not automatically granted. A TLA representative at the housing office will explain requirements to establish entitlements while you locate adequate housing. Family members must be command-sponsored in accordance with the JFTR (Joint Federal Travel Regulation) . You must bring orders endorsed by your command, Page 2 and a copy of a Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) within the last 45 days are required for all appointments.   

Scheduling an appointment in advance helps individuals since due to customer volume, walk-ins may not be accommodated on the same day. You must report to the HSC even if your family is arriving at a later date, if you have already purchased a home or plan on buying one, found a place to rent, and/or plan to live with family or friends.
