Coast Guard and Department of Defense personnel occupy 508
family housing units on the Massachusetts Military Reservation.
The Family Housing area is comprised of single ranch, single flat-top, and multiplex townhouse units with full basements and private yards in a wooded setting. Each housing site has adequate parking, and playgrounds are located within walking distance from each complex. Two chain-link-fence storage areas are available for recreational vehicle and boat storage.
Housing at Air Station Cape Cod is assigned by pay grade, family size, control date, and current Interservice Support Agreements in accordance with the Coast Guard Housing Manual. On-base housing is mandatory for Coast Guard personnel. Applications for release will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Members from other services must submit their housing applications to their local housing authority before securing housing in the private sector.
Applications for military family housing for Coast Guard personnel consist of forms CG5267 (Application for Assignment to Military Housing), CG4170 (Record of Emergency Data), and
a copy of PCS orders (This may be a copy of your message orders until a hard copy
of orders can be provided).
The CG5267 can be found in the forms section of the Work Station III Coast Guard computer, retrieved from the Coast Guard Headquarters website (USCG.mil), or from your persu, admin, or housing office.
For DOD personnel, DD Form 1746 and a copy of orders are required. These forms should be submitted to the Housing Office prior to the member’s detachment from their previous unit.
Due to high transfer rates during the summer a moderate delay in housing assignment may
be encountered for E-7 and above personnel. This is due to the limited housing available,
the departure dates of outgoing personnel, and turn around time
for each housing unit.
To minimize the wait it is recommended that the Housing Office be contacted at (508) 968- 6505 as soon as possible after orders are received to Air Station Cape Cod.
Off-base rental housing, as in many resort areas, is at a premium and therefore very costly. Weekly summer rentals can cost as much as monthly rentals during the winter. The Housing Office maintains a listing of yearly/seasonal rentals in the local area.
Air Station Cape Cod offers Temporary Quarters at Wings Inn as part of the Coast Guard Morale, Well-Being, and Recreation (MWR) Department.
