When planning for a move with the military, you might consider moving into government housing. Government housing is owned and maintained by the Department of Defense and is typically on the installation. Eligibility and availability for this type of housing may vary by service member, family size and installation. Learn more about the different options, benefits and discounts that may be available to you through government housing.
After you have signed in to post, Army regulations require you to report to Housing Office before you make any permanent off-post living arrangements. If eligible, you can be placed on the waiting list for on-post housing at this time.
Michaels acquired the contract in July of 2015. Leasing, assignments and termination of on-post housing is conducted by Michaels at 4553 Tippecanoe in the Sandy Basin neighborhood.
Because Fort Irwin' s on-post housing is privatized, the full Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) amount appears on the LES as an entitlement and is simultaneously subtracted as an allotment paid to Michaels for rent. Reasonable utility allowances for electric, natural gas, water and sewer that fall within a baseline for a particular type of house are included with the rent.
Availability and Eligibility
Soldiers of all ranks, with family members, are eligible for on-post housing. The homes range in size from 2 to 4 bedrooms and some are handicap accessible. One bedroom apartments are also available.
Soldiers are placed on the waiting list for on-post housing in accordance with the soldier's eligibility date. This date will be established in the Housing office. The waiting list for quarters currently varies from 2 to 24 months. The Housing Office will consider waiting list variables such as grade, number of family members, etc. Soldiers arriving from an unaccompanied tour (such as Korea) are given a waiting period adjustment based on the number of months they served on the unaccompanied tour (up to 18 months). For instance, a 12-month adjustment will be made for someone who served a 12-month unaccompanied tour in Korea.
Company grade officers, warrant officers and most senior NCOs drawing BAH at the without dependents rate are not required to live on post.
