Living in military family housing, or government housing, provides easy access to a wealth of community services and amenities such as schools, youth programs, commissary, base exchange, and food services. This is especially true in overseas locations where military members are reliant on the support facilities and services on the installation. MFH also provides a safe, secure and supportive environment.
In general, MFH is provided to military members who meet the following criteria:
- Members with family members authorized to reside with them
- Military-married-to-military couples assigned to the same or adjacent base and reside jointly
At certain overseas locations, MFH may be available to other categories of personnel, based on specific policies, procedures, and mission needs.
