Finding a Home
Get ready, set, GO start your housing search …
and be patient.
There are many options for living both on and off base. The links below not only have information about housing, but the local community, schools, etc. So, set aside some time to browse all the links in their entirety, as the NCR is vast and the housing options are endless.
Housing Referral Services
Installations are required by DoD 4165.63-M and AF Policy to provide Housing Support and Referral Services to all DoD personnel and their dependents to help locate suitable, affordable, and nondiscriminatory housing in the local community or in privatized housing. In accordance with DoD policy, Service Members shall obtain housing support services prior to agreeing to rent, lease, or purchase housing. Your orders should also state to contact the Housing Office prior to entering into a rental or lease agreement. This requirement is in your best interest to ensure you make fully informed decisions on housing for you and your family at your new assignment.

Housing Early Assistance Tool (HEAT)
WHAT IS HEAT?
Housing Early Assistance Tool (HEAT) creates an easy on-line experience to connect you, the Service Member, with your future destination and offers an on-line venue to obtain housing assistance prior to a PCS transfer. HQ Air Force Housing has successfully implemented HEAT across the AF Enterprise so members can reach out to installations when preparing for transition. Installations are accessible through the HEAT tool across CONUS and most OCONUS installations. Members should use HEAT when preparing to transfer to their new assignment.
