Will we be responsible for utility costs?
The Department of Defense has issued a policy that will require families to eventually assume responsibility for excessive utility usage. This program is not currently active at a Corvias at Fort Sill. There are two components to the BAH that you receive. They are: utility costs and rent. Corvias will inform you well ahead of any DoD-mandated resident responsibility programs. At that time, Corvias will hold a series of town halls to provide additional information and answer questions. Typically under these programs, there is a mock billing period lasting three to six months to allow families to become familiar with their usage. After that period, residents become responsible for excessive energy usage. However, for families who conserve energy, there is typically a reward program offering cash rebates.

Your rank and the number of dependents will determine the number of bedrooms your family qualifies for as well as the housing areas you may be placed.
Can I get priority placement on the housing list?
Your initial position on the housing list is determined by the date you submit your application. Deployment or returning from a non-restricted overseas tour does not give you priority placement or affect your position on the housing list.
Why does my position keep going up on the housing list?
Fluctuation, up and down, of your housing list position is common. In fact, your position may change several times prior to your arrival.
What happens if someone has the same eligibility date as me?
If someone has the same eligibility date, date-of-rank will be the secondary factor regarding placement on the list. The earlier date-of-rank will be placed first. If the date of rank is the same, date of entry into service will be used.
