All officers and enlisted personnel accompanied by their bona fide family members are eligible to apply for Military Family Housing. To apply for quarters, you need a local housing application form or DD Form 1746 (Application for Assignment to Housing), a copy of orders showing your detachment date and certification of family members. Application may be made in person or submitted by mail. Those submitted by mail must be confirmed within 30 days of reporting to San Diego.

Your control date (effective date of application) determines your placement on the housing waiting list. The control date will usually be the date of detachment from your last permanent duty station, if the application is received within 30 days of your arrival in San Diego.

Personnel who apply for MFH will receive a written acknowledgement indicating the approximate waiting period for quarters. The waiting times quoted are approximate times only and can fluctuate rapidly.

You (or a member of your immediate family) must confirm an advance quarters application within 30 days of reporting for duty of arrival in the San Diego area. Failure to confirm will result in the cancellation of your application.

Inquires into MFH should be directed to the Family Housing Office.
