Leased Government Housing is a program designed to offset the high costs and difficulty of finding a suitable home while living in a geographically-dispersed location. The LGH program does not have housing set aside for soldiers and their families, and there are a limited number of leases available each year. If approved for the program, the soldiers relinquish all of their Basic Allowance for Housing to the Corps of Engineers. The Corps of Engineers enters into the lease agreement with the landlord. The LGH can be of benefit for areas where appropriate rentals greatly exceed the BAH rates. If there are suitable rental options within the soldier’s BAH plus 5% out of pocket costs and within a 60-minute commute (during peak commuting times) to their official duty location or a military installation where housing is available, the LGH program will not be an option. When LGH is determined to be a viable option, the soldier will submit an application for approval to the Corps of Engineers. A copy of the soldier’s permanent change of station orders, DD Form 1172 (dependent verification), LGH statement of understanding and the LGH application information page are needed to begin the application process. Once the complete application is received and submitted by U.S. Army Cadet Command to the Corps of Engineers, the process takes a minimum of 45 days. Soldiers must meet all eligibility requirements set forth by the Corps of Engineers (listed below). If interested in (or to apply for) the LGH program, soldiers should contact 502-624-2060 or email email@example.com upon PCS notification.
Eligibility for Family Leased Housing (not an all inclusive list)
The program is open to all ranks for soldiers with dependents.
All eligible personnel must be receiving BAH at the ‘with dependent’ rate and accompanied by dependents. In cases of joint custody of dependents, only the soldier who has custody for more than six months per year is eligible.
Permanent duty station must be located in a location that is greater than a one-hour commute from a military installation which has government housing.
If adequate suitable housing is identified by the Corps of Engineers but declined by the soldier, the soldier is dropped from the program. They cannot reapply for the program until they have orders for a PCS.
Total annual cost of housing plus utilities must not exceed the maximum annual cap set by the Corps of Engineers.
Unit size is based on number of dependents up to a maximum of four bedrooms as listed below:
Member and spouse share one bedroom.
Children under 6 years of age share bedroom with same or opposite gender (maximum of two children per bedroom).
Children 6-9 years of age share bedroom with same gender only (maximum two children per bedroom).
Dependent parents are entitled to their own bedroom.
Soldier must show proof that a child 18-22 years of age is enrolled in school/college. The child loses bedroom entitlement on 23rd birthday.
NOTE: Number and age of dependents may increase the bedroom authorizations of this chart.
