The Marine Corps Base Hawaii Family Housing Department and our Public-Private Venture (PPV) partner – Ohana Military Communities (A Hunt Military Community), provides privatized housing to families of Marines assigned to duty on Oahu, and to members of other services assigned as tenant or supported commands at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
The MCB Hawaii Housing Office is located on the first floor at 1571 Lawrence Road, Kaneohe Bay. Our hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 0730-1530; and Wednesdays from 0730-1400.
Privatized Housing Application Process: All privatized family housing applications are submitted via MCB Hawaii Family Housing Office in order to determine housing eligibility, assign housing category based on pay grade, and determine control date and assignment priority. Once all the required documents are received and families arrive on station, the completed housing application is then referred to our PPV partner. All inbound members are advised not to send their personally identifiable information (PII), DD Form 1746 (Application for Assignment to Housing) and other supporting documents to any third party providers on the internet.
Housing Application Process Chart
Housing Application: Marine Corps Base Hawaii Family Housing Office uses the date of receipt of completed housing application to establish service member's waiting list control date. The following documents need to be submitted:

Your waiting list control date is determined by the date we receive all four documents. If your packet is incomplete, your control date will be set on the date we receive the final document.
