    Does Catagory 2 EFM make a difference for housing?

    Advertisements
    My son is catagory 2 EFm and I am having a time trying to get an answer to my question. Is his catagory high enough to make a difference in the list?

    It didn't for us but every situation is different and I would just ask housing.

    not usually -- unless it's something like extreme asthma/allergies -- then maybe they could give you housing with a/c and change the filters out every few months.

    but i don't think it will help move you up on the list.

    Depends on the bases length of the waitlists. Most bases only give priority to 4 & 5 though.

    EFM for us allowed us to to get a home with A/C (because of asthma.) I'm cat 2. It did not bump us up the list and I don't think the rules allow for cat 2's to do that. I think you need to be a higher cat.

    Both my kids are cat. 2 and it did nothing for us. We still had to wait about 3 months to get housing. DD has a heart condition and DS has asthma.

    I am a 5 so we got a house right away. I think it depends on the housing area, wating list and reason you may need it. Everyplace is different.
