Recently, I began receiving information on the Department of Defense Homeowners Assistance Program. This DoD program originally was designed to assist DoD employees affected by a base realignment known as Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission (BRAC). Due to the recent passage of the stimulus bill February 17th, 2009, two additional military groups were added. One was for wounded warriors and the other was for military members required to move due to a permanent change of station or PCS.
Does anyone have information beyond the application, information sheets on who is eligible, and where to send the application? I have three military members desiring to remain in the military and seriously thinking about getting out of the military as they do not know if/when they PCS, this program will aid their situation. They have watched other military members struggle with two homes and do not wish to do the same. Thank you in advance for any assistance on this new program.
