With certain military moves, you may find yourself looking for housing that’s a little less permanent before making long-term arrangements. There are several temporary housing options that may be right for you. Explore the information about temporary housing facilities including allowances, lodging rates and eligibility.
Most military lodging facilities and major hotels on island DO NOT accept pets. The Inns of the Corps is the designated government lodging facility for Marine Corps Base Hawaii with some pet friendly rooms. If there are no rooms available, a Statement of Non-Availability will be issued which allows you to use off-base lodging facilities that are reimbursed by the government. Be sure to contact the TLA office at 808-257-2198 or MCBH.TLA.FMB@USMC.MIL for the most up to date TLA approved lodging list, local rules, reimbursement procedures and any questions or concerns.
For pet owners that can not find pet friendly lodging, there is the MWR Pet Kennel (or MWR kennel) facility located near Camp Smith. For more information, contact at 808-368-3456.
Special Note: TLA will be forfeited if service member locks on off base community housing prior to checking in at the TLA Office.
Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) is authorized to all military personnel arriving on Permanent Change of Station orders pending availability of government quarters, or pending completion of arrangement for other permanent living accommodations when government quarters are not available.
TLA is a travel entitlement to help partially reimburse a member for the more than normal expenses incurred during occupancy of temporary lodging and expenses of meals obtained as a direct result of use of temporary lodging outside the Continental United States (CONUS) which do not have facilities for preparing and consuming meals.
Arrival TLA is administered in 10-day increments only, for a total of 60 days during the first 60 days of a member s initial arrival. If all requirements are satisfied, and the member cannot find adequate housing, then arrival TLA will terminate at 12:59 PM on the 60 day.
TLA is not paid in advanced; but is a reimbursement which is paid after filing a completed claim with receipts and endorsements. TLA reimbursement claims are forwarded to the Finance Office at the conclusion of each 10-day increment; reimbursement is then electronically deposited within 72-96 hours of submission.
Since TLA is a reimbursement program, members must pay for their temporary lodging out-of-pocket first then submit the receipts to be receive the reimbursements. It's highly recommended to save for at least 12 days worth of lodging and meals since these expenses will be expected upon arrival. To receive or initiate TLA promptly for Marines:
