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.
Marine Corps Air Station Yuma housing became privatized on Oct. 10, 2004. Housing aboard MCAS Yuma is managed by Liberty Military Housing. A full-time government staff is also available to serve members on issues pertaining strictly to the military, including applications for housing, wait lists, basic allowance for housing issues, etc., as well as providing an off-station referral program. For assistance with housing applications, waitlists, BAH issues and referrals for renting out in the Yuma community, call 928-269-2826. The Government Family Housing office and LMH are located at Building 1093, Thomas Avenue. For LMH, call 928-344-1240.
Assignment to housing is not mandatory at MCAS Yuma but is recommended for E5 and below, along with first duty station Marines. Quarters are diverse in size, shape and style. All housing units have been renovated and upgraded, or newly built in the 2005-07 timeframe. Annual upgrades are completed to include landscaping, dog parks and other improvements. We continue forward with improvements that boost morale and lead to happy residents and productive service members.
Military personnel who are authorized BAH assigned to this activity with permanent change of station orders, and have one or more registered family members residing with them for more than six months out of the year, are eligible to apply for base housing. Eligible service members can apply for housing prior to arrival by faxing or emailing a DD 1746 (housing application) along with supporting documents. Applications are made through the Government Family Housing office. Once the application is complete, the wait list is handled by LMH. Applications may be made in person, submitted by fax at 928-269-3284, called in to 928-269-3284 or emailed. Those not submitted in person must be confirmed within 30 days of reporting to MCAS Yuma.

Housing Units There are 693 on-station houses, separated by rank and bedroom entitlement, and 128 off-station apartments (3100 W. 16th St.). Sixteenth Street apartments are two-bedroom apartments, and onlyE1-E5 personnel with 0-1 children are qualified for these apartments/wait list. Two pets are allowed in base housing. Dogs are permitted in downstairs apartments at 16th Street housing and upstairs with a 25-pound weight limit. Cats are permitted in upstairs or downstairs apartments. Pit bulls, Rottweilers, canid/wolf hybrids or pets mixed with any of these breeds or any breeds with dominant traits of aggression present an unreasonable risk to the health and safety of personnel in family housing areas and are prohibited aboard all Marine Corps installations.
The EFMP manager, in close coordination with Family Housing and LMH, works to meet the needs of military families with special needs. Priority assignment is determined on a case-by-case basis based on the letter issued to the member from HQMC as part of the program requirements.
Check-in for Housing
Once a service member has detached from their last command, they may check in for housing purposes prior to the official check in to their unit. The service member with detachment orders can check in with the officer in charge, IPAC, located at Building 507. The service member then can provide endorsement of orders to the housing office to place their name on the waiting list or accept housing if they have not already done so. Advanced applications with web orders are also accepted. The LMH office is open Monday-Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. The Government Family Housing office is open Monday-Friday,7 a.m.-3:30 p.m. The office is closed on weekends and holidays.
Your position is determined by an individual’s control date on the waitlist. If you are just making a permanent change of station to MCAS Yuma, your control date is the date the GFH office receives a completed housing application package. If you are already attached to MCAS Yuma, your control date would be your date of application. Wait times are subject to change without notice. Call the GFH office before you detach your command to verify wait times or for assistance locating rental property in the local community. Wait times range from 30 days to 12-18 months, based on occupancy/availability. While waiting for privatized housing, there are a limited number of short-term/temporary lodging facilities in the local community that service members can rent weekly or month to month. Some of the short-term lodging facilities accept pets, some with restrictions and some require a nonrefundable security/pet deposit. Families with two or more children, and/or a pet(s), may find it difficult to locate temporary (1-3 month) rentals, and may wish to consider alternate temporary arrangements.
These waits are subject to change without notice as wait times for housing are only estimates. Contact the LMH office for updated wait times.
Please contact Barracks Housing Office at 928-269-3529.
We have resources to help you locate houses, condos and town homes as well as property management companies in the community.
