An official army family and MWR Site

Home-Based Business

Home-Based Business applications are available to interested family members at the DFMWR office and advertised/posted prominently on the garrison website. Garrisons will utilize the standard HBB application found at Enclosure 3.

The approval authority to operate an HBB on the installation is the Senior Commander or, when delegated, the Garrison Commander. Garrisons must process HBB applications as consistently and expeditiously as possible but not later than 60 calendar days following submission. SC/GCs are highly encouraged to approve requests for HBBs when the business owner demonstrates authority to operate the same business at a previous installation and they meet all local licensure and other legal requirements. The garrison will be prepared to provide periodic data as requested on HBB operation. Data requirements include the number of HBBs operating on the installation, HBB type, the number of HBB applications, the number of HBBs approved, and the number of HBBs denied, to include the reasons for HBB denial. The DFMWR office, installation-housing office and the applicant will maintain the provided copy of approved application.

The HBB owner remains responsible for completing the application process, obtaining the necessary permissions, licenses (if applicable) and liability insurance.

The HBB owner also is responsible for any damages to third parties arising from the conduct of the business.
