Will I have to pay an application fee or a security deposit on Rental Partnership Program housing?
There is no application or administration fee associated with Rental Partnership Program (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 end of active obligated service (EAOS) and projected rotation date (PRD) are eligible.
How do I get approved for RPP housing?
The Service Member must provide orders and leave and earnings statement (LES) to the Housing Service Center (HSC). The Service Member must have a minimum of 180 days remaining prior to EAOS and PRD. If single and E4 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 RPP.
I am currently in a lease; when can I get into RPP?
It is up to the individual management companies to release a Service 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.
