Newer rentals and those rentals closer to post have typically higher rents than those older rentals and rentals farther from post.

Single Service members who are not authorized to live in the barracks will be required to find housing in the local community and can use the same resources to find housing as married Service members in the FDMCH Welcome Home Center.
