All personnel reporting for duty at MCLB Albany must check in with the Housing Referral Service Office, whether or not assistance is requested.

MILITARY PERSONNEL CENTERThe Military Personnel Center serves as the conduit of administrative functions for commanders, their Marines and family members stationed aboard Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany. It is the initial point of entry/departure for Marines to check in or check out of the base upon assignment/reassignment and separation. Additionally, it provides numerous services including issuing permanent change of station orders, temporary additional duty orders, processing travel claims, conducting audits, processing correspondence, pay entitlements and recording training events.

OFF-BASE HOUSINGA good selection of rental property exists in the surrounding community. The rental rate for a typical three-bedroom house with central heat and air conditioning averages $800 to $1,200 per month, plus utilities. One-year leases are usually required. Apartments are one- to three-bedrooms, unfurnished, with six- to 12-month leases, and range from $400 to $700, plus utilities. Deposits begin at $400 and range up to a full month’s rent. Utility deposits may be required based on personal credit references. Connection fees are reasonable. Homes for sale average $150,000 for a 1,800-square-foot, three-bedroom house with central heat and air. The Housing Referral Office can assist personnel through personalized counseling and by providing information on military clauses, returns of deposit, landlord-tenant mediation services, local community information and other areas of concern.
ON-BASE HOUSINGA public-private venture partnership was formed in October 2007 to redevelop the housing units aboard MCLB Albany. The homes on the base are owned and professionally managed by Lincoln Military Housing. Inbound personnel should submit a copy of their orders and a DD Form 1746 to the Housing Office as soon as possible. The control date for determining when an individual becomes eligible for placement on the waiting list for family housing will be based on the date of receipt of the member’s application for housing. Housing application forms are included in welcome aboard packages sent to inbound personnel. If the form is missing from the package, call the nearest military housing office or the MCLB Albany Housing Office at 229-639-5962 to receive one by mail or fax. Forms may also be downloaded from https://installations.militaryonesource.mil. Once housing applications are processed by the Housing Office, applications will be referred to Lincoln Military Housing, who will contact personnel regarding housing availability and a potential waiting list. Homes are offered by Lincoln staff. Leases are required with a minimum six-month commitment (continuing to a month-to-month basis after the initial lease is fulfilled), a 30-day written notice prior to vacating a property and include the military clause in the event early-lease termination is required. The Lincoln management staff is within the Lincoln Military Housing Community Center at 12036 Putnam Blvd.
