WASHINGTON (AFNS) — The Air Force is scheduled to implement a web-based tool that will enable military members and their families to connect with installation housing offices to inquire about housing options at their upcoming duty assignment.
Beginning April 2, 2018, the new Housing Early Assistance Tool will allow members and dependents to request housing information for on-base government, community and privatized housing, where applicable. At bases with privatized housing, members can be connected with their local privatized housing management team upon their consent to release contact information right from HEAT.
“The HEAT provides for an easy online experience to connect the members with their future destination and offers an online venue to obtain housing assistance prior to a PCS transfer,” said Sheila Schwartz, Air Force housing program lead. “Air Force housing offices look forward to assisting members and their families in support of finding their next home.”
HEAT can be accessed via a link on homes.mil and the Air Force Housing Public Website at http://www.housing.af.mil.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
