All Applicants

You can get your application for Fort Hamilton Family Homes started in a variety of ways:

Active Duty Military Applicants

A completed housing application is required in order to be placed on the wait list. Other documentation may be required depending on your situation, including a copy of current PCS orders. To accept a home, Service Members must be signed in at Fort Hamilton and present confirmation of clearing previous duty station (form DA31).

Your eligibility date for housing is determined according to the following criteria:
  • If you are PCSing and are within the 30-day window, your eligibility date is the day you left your previous duty station (as verified by clearing papers).
  • If you are PCSing and do not apply within the 30-day window, your eligibility date is the date of your application.
  • If you are coming from an unaccompanied tour (e.g. Korea), your eligibility date is the date you departed your previous duty station for the unaccompanied tour, with a maximum credit of 14 months. You will need to provide copies of your orders for an unaccompanied tour.
  • If this is your first duty station and you are married, your eligibility date is your date of entry into the military. If you were married after the date of entry, your eligibility date is the date of the marriage. If this is your first permanent duty station, you will need to provide a copy of your orders from Basic Training and AIT to confirm your eligibility date.
