Family Housing


All officers and enlisted personnel who are entitled to BAH with dependents and are accompanied by their dependents are eligible for Training Center Petaluma family housing.

We are the primary housing site for personnel permanently assigned to Training Center Petaluma, NAVCEN, Station Bodega Bay, CGC Sockeye, ESD Petaluma, CPO Academy, and PACAREA Armory North.

Assignment Policy

As good stewards of the taxpayer’s money, Training Center Petaluma actively strives to maintain the Coast Guard’s standard of 98% minimum occupancy level of our housing site. Therefore, all eligible personnel reporting to the commands listed above should expect to be assigned to government housing if housing is available.

Please see: TRACEN Petaluma Instruction 11101.2A, Housing Assignment Process (available on the CGWeb only).

Housing Release


A release from assignment to government housing must be obtained from your new command (THAT'S US!) prior to procuring housing in the local community. This means that if you find a place to live in the local community, you must first receive a release from the housing office to reside off base. Be aware that entitlement to BAH will not be processed without a signed release. If you have any questions, contact the housing staff at 707-765-7145.
