Am I allowed to run a business from my home?
Permission to conduct a home enterprise such as child care operated by a DoN-approved licensed child care provider, tailoring, tax preparation, etc. in Family Housing should be requested in writing to the AMCC Community Management Office. All in-home businesses must be properly licensed by all local, state, and federal laws; in addition to installation requirements. Businesses which adversely affect the tranquility or safety of the military community will not be allowed. Requests for modifications to the home for an in-home business must be submitted in writing and approved by the Community Manager; any modifications will be at the Resident’s expense. Businesses will not duplicate the sale of merchandise and services readily available through the installations’ officially sanctioned commerce. Door-to-door sales, surveys, and/or solicitations of any sort are not permitted. Likewise, commercial advertising or flyers of any kind may not be posted or distributed. It is a Federal offense to attach anything to mailboxes.
Are guests allowed to stay with me?
Any visitors staying with a resident at Tri-Command housing needs to go to the Military Housing Office, either on the MCAS Beaufort or MCRD Parris Island to receive a visitors pass. Visitors cannot stay longer than two weeks without an AA form from chain of command.
I’m going to be out of town for a while. Is there anyone who can keep an eye on my house?
Fill out an I'll Be Back form, and turn it into the Community Center office. Please provide an emergency contact of someone who will be checking on the home in your absence.

toys, hoses, any items that could get in the way of the lawn
mowers, and all yard debris including leaves, branches and rocks.

The schedule listed above does not guarantee a weekly mow schedule, but simply suggests the days of the week the landscaping contractor may mow in that neighborhood.
Green Waste Removal
Residents are encouraged to recycle green
- Green waste should be neatly bundled and tied together in a neat package not to exceed 4 feet in length by 2 feet in width.

Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP) - How Does it Work?
The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) set
forth the policy for the payment of utilities in Public Private
Venture (PPV) housing to encourage energy efficiency in privatized
housing units. The Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP)
represents the Navy's next step in establishing an energy
conservation program in PPV housing consistent with the OSD
The RECP is designed to set reasonable utility usage targets for normal utility consumption. Homes are grouped into profiles with similar or same floor plan types and sizes. The utility usage target is established on a monthly average utility allowance for each home based on a five-year rolling average of each specific month. Each month families will receive an actual bill and accrue credit for rebates if they use less than the average utility allowance. If a family exceeds the 10% buffer they are responsible for payment. It is important to note that payment due is only for the amount over the 10% buffer, not for the entire amount consumed.
Note: An allowance for "normal" utilities (electricity and natural gas) use is part of the BAH. This program was designed by the Navy to encourage residents to achieve normal usage and to reward them for conservation beyond normal expectations. If you conserve and use utilities wisely within a normal range, families should have no out-of-pocket utility expense, and may even qualify for a rebate.

Is renters insurance mandatory?
Beginning June 15, 2023, renters insurance is

protects you from claims for property damage and physical injury
caused by or to you, a member of your family or a guest while
living in your home. The lease requires proof of insurance coverage
meeting the minimum requirements with Atlantic Marine Corps
Communities named as an interested party at time of
If you fail to obtain and maintain liability insurance as required by your lease, you will be in violation of your obligation under the lease. For more information, click here.
