Waitlist Guidelines & Housing Assignment
An IPC home will not be made available unless the service member has at least twelve months remaining in his tour, in compliance with the lease which is an initial twelve months commitment. Service members married to other service members whose spouses accompany them on their tour are authorized assignment to family housing. Unmarried service members with accompanying (command sponsored) family members are also authorized family housing contingent upon those family members residing with them on a full-time basis.
An eligibility date is entered into Yardi system and the service member is placed on the applicable waiting list by rank and bedroom requirement per command sponsored dependents on orders. For an inbound Soldier, the eligibility date is the date the Soldier signed out of his/her last duty station as long as the Soldier applies for housing within 7 days of arrival. Adjustments to the eligibility date will be made for unaccompanied or other special duty tours. For a Soldier currently in a lease off post, the eligibility date is the date of application.
Eligibility for housing is based on the following priority sequence:
|Priority Class 1
||Key and essential accompanied or unaccompanied military or civilian personnel (including Coast Guard) assigned or attached for duty at the Installations or at a Coast Guard or Marine Corps facility.
