Housing Early Assistance Tool (HEAT)
HEAT stands for Housing Early Assistance Tool. Navy Housing has developed HEAT to assist Service Members (SVMs) and their families in obtaining housing information Navywide. HEAT allows SVMs, DoD sponsored civilians, and their families to get the housing process started online at one or more Navy installations before or after they receive their Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. HEAT is available to any SVM at all Navy installations.
HEAT creates an easy user experience to connect with your destination. Spouses can use the tool as well, needing only minimal information about their SVM.
All you need to get started is the sponsor's last name, DoD ID number, your contact information, and new duty location(s).
Please note that HEAT does not place you on a waitlist and cannot improve your position on a housing waitlist. The waitlist position is determined by regulations and verification of your eligibility by Housing personnel. HEAT does allow you to make earlier contact and complete an advance or active application with the assistance of a Housing counselor. HEAT is available to any SVM going to a Navy managed installation.
