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.
Training Center Petaluma actively strives to maintain the Coast Guard's standard of 95% minimum occupancy at our housing site. Therefore, many eligible personnel reporting to the commands listed above could be assigned to government housing if housing is available. Please list all your concerns on your application to help the housing team execute the housing process.
Please see: TRACEN Petaluma Instruction 11101.1I, Housing Assignment Process (available on the CGWeb only).
A release from assignment to government housing must be obtained from the TRACEN housing office prior to finding 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 housing office to reside off base. Be aware that entitlement to BAH will not be processed by the local admin team without a signed release. If you have any questions, contact the housing staff at 707-765-7145 or 707-765-7372.
