GOVERNMENT FURNITURE

Support categories
Military and DOD civilian personnel authorized to occupy off-post economy housing will receive permanent issue of kitchen cabinets, wardrobes, refrigerator, range, and washer/dryer.  The extent of other furnishings support depends on the Joint Federal Travel Regulation (JFTR) Weight Allowance under which they are traveling.

Limited JFTR - Personnel traveling with LJFTR will receive full furniture support for the duration of their tour.

Elective JFTR
- Personnel traveling under EJFTR who elect to ship their household goods will receive 90-day loaner furniture.  Those who elected partial or no household goods shipment will receive long-term furniture support for those items not shipped.  The Household Inventory list will be used to determine which items are authorized.

Full JFTR
- Inbound personnel with FJFTR are authorized loaner furniture for 90 days or until their household goods shipment arrives. 

DOD Civilian Personnel (excluding contractors)
- DOD civilians living in either private rental housing or in government quarters are entitled to the same furniture support as long as they were hired in the Continental United States or hired in Europe and receive Living Quarters Allowance.  Contractors are not authorized furnishings support.

Application for furnishings should be made at your housing office.  A minimum of four working days is required for the scheduling of deliveries or pick-ups.  Residents will establish a hand receipt at the time of their quarters assignment.  A joint inventory by the Housing Inspector and resident will be conducted at the assignment inspection.  Residents should inspect furnishings carefully documenting in specific detail all stains or other damage to avoid being held responsible at turn in.
