How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in Fort Leonard Wood Homes! We look forward to welcoming you to your new home and want to make sure the application and leasing process is as convenient and efficient as possible. Fort Leonard Wood Homes serves as the on-base housing community for active duty Army families assigned to Fort Leonard Wood and we also welcome qualified military retiree, DOD civilian and general public applicants in select neighborhoods.

All Applicants

You can get your application for Fort Leonard Wood Homes started in a variety of ways:
  • Copy of Stamped Orders
  • Proof/validation of dependents who will occupy housing
  • Valid identification and a DA Form 31 "Request and Authority for Leave" document (or other military services' equivalent) during processing of the housing application or upon initial visit to the MHPI leasing office
  • Signed Housing Application
  • LES Statement

Application Process

A completed housing application is required in order to be placed on the wait list. Applicants will be placed on the applicable waiting list based on rank and number of Family members; however, applicants will not be offered a home until the rental application is complete and all required supporting documentation has been received. Other documentation may be required depending on your situation, including a copy of current PCS orders. Documentation is not required to start your application, however the more information you are able to share, the faster we will be able to find a home for you and your family. To accept a home, the Service Member must be signed in at Fort Leonard Wood and present confirmation of clearing previous duty station (Form IPPS-A Absence Request).

Service member eligibility date for housing is determined according to the following criteria:
  • If you are PCSing and are within the 30-day window, your eligibility date is the day you left your previous duty station (as verified by clearing papers).
  • If you are PCSing and do not apply within the 30-day window, your eligibility date is the date of your application.
  • If you are coming from an unaccompanied tour (e.g. Korea), your eligibility date is the date you departed your previous duty station for the unaccompanied tour, with a maximum credit of 14 months. You will need to provide copies of your orders for an unaccompanied tour.
  • If this is your first duty station and you are married, your eligibility date is your date of entry into the military. If you were married after the date of entry, your eligibility date is the date of the marriage. If this is your first permanent duty station, you will need to provide a copy of your orders from Basic Training and AIT to confirm your eligibility date.
