The computerized service is available to Army families during a PCS from the Community Homefinding, Relocation and Referral Services (CHRRS) offices at Army installations worldwide.

The program, called Housing Relocation Assistance Program, includes PCSHOUSE Express and a Home Purchase Estimate Program.

PCSHOUSE EXPRESS contains on- and off-post housing information, important telephone numbers, as well as pertinent information concerning the installation and surrounding civilian communities.
