Application and Waiting List

How to Apply

Active duty military personnel with qualifying family members who are assigned for duty within the local commuting area in possession of permanent change of duty station (PCS) orders for a minimum of six months are eligible to apply for Family Housing.

To apply, the following five items must be filled out, signed by the service member, and submitted to the Housing Office. Your Control Date will be determined based on the date the Housing Office receives a completed application package which, at minimum, must contain the following items:

Required Documents

All forms must be signed by the military member (sponsor). If the spouse signs under Power of Attorney (POA), a copy of the POA must be submitted when applying. Unique situations or major events may require additional documentation such as:

  • Custody Paperwork: If dependents are not listed on dependency forms.
  • OB/GYN Statement: Doctor's letter confirming pregnancy and estimated due date.
  • Administrative Action Form: If requesting exception to policy to be accelerated on the waiting list, etc.
  • Marriage Certificate: If newly married and spouse has not been added to dependency application.
  • EFMP Letter: Program qualification letter from HQMC if requesting priority or modifications to a home.

To submit completed application package, use any one of the following methods:

  • Email:
  • Fax: (928) 269-3284 or DSN 269-3284
  • In person at: Bldg 1093 Thomas Ave, MCAS Yuma, AZ

Waiting List

The objective of the Family Housing Program is to ensure that military personnel, with qualifying family members, have adequate, affordable housing for their families. There are a limited number of homes on base and the local community serves as the primary source of housing for personnel normally eligible to draw a housing allowance.

Contact the MCAS Yuma Housing Office prior to your PCS move to get an idea of how long you may have to wait before being offered base housing by sending an email to or calling (928) 269-2826 or (928) 269-3643.

It is important that you apply for housing and have your name placed on the appropriate waiting list as soon as possible after receiving orders to MCAS Yuma. By applying, you are not obligated to move into housing, but you guarantee yourself a position on the waiting list.

When your Control Date is established, you will be given your waiting list position. If you remove yourself from the waiting list, you will lose the one-time entitlement for a Gov't funded local move. If you wish to go back on the waiting list, you must reapply and will receive a new Control Date.

Placement on a waiting list does not guarantee base housing will be available when you arrive or during your tour of duty. The waiting list is not static and your position may change in both directions, up or down, until you reach the Freeze Zone. The Freeze Zone is the top 10% of each waiting list.

You may check your position on the List by contacting the Housing Office or by viewing a posted Waiting List located on the exterior wall near the entrance of the Housing Office, Bldg 1093.

Please contact the Housing Office as waiting times are estimated and are subject to change at any time via or (928) 269-2826 or (928) 269-3643.
