USAG Hawaii Home Based Businesses (HBBs)

Home Based Businesses (HBBs) are an important contributor to Army Family quality of life – new changes to procedures makes it easier and quicker gain approval to operate an on-post HBB.

You must obtain approval from the garrison commander or senior commander.

Get approved now!

•    If you operate an HBB on post and aren’t yet approved, now’s the time to get official.
•    We’ve recently streamlined processes, so you can get approved within 60 days.
•    Moving your HBB from another installation? If you were approved there, the process is even easier!
•    Official on-post offerings from AAFES, the Commissary and MWR no longer consider HBBs competition, and you don’t have to gain their approval.
•    Operating an HBB from your quarters without approval can violate policy and get you in trouble.

Don’t delay. Get your Home Based Business registered today by contacting your local DFMWR, Business and Non Profit Liaison at, usarmy.wheeler.id-pacific.mbx.business-liaison@mail.mil or visit the website at https://hawaii.armymwr.com/

HBBs allow Families to work from their Army quarters, developing rewarding careers that follow them through PCS moves.  Contact DFMWR to complete the application process, which includes obtaining permission, licenses (if applicable), and liability insurance.  HBBs operated by Army Families includes:

•    Arts and Crafts
•    Pet grooming and pet sitting (Must comply with USAG-HI-13, Animal Control Policy and Housing Guidance)
•    Massage therapy
•    Retail sales from home

Not everyone who works from home operates an HBBs.  If you work remotely from your home (off-post), you probably don’t need approval. Other examples of businesses that don’t need approval are:

•    Bookkeeping and tax preparation
•    Personal training conducted outside the home (One on One service/ Not authorized to use USAG-HI facilities or fields)
•    Photography, graphic design, and advertising services
•    Tutoring and music instruction
•    Entertainment or travel planning
•    Housecleaning and lawn care
•    Selling items from multi-level marketing (MLM) companies (Attending events must register)

Home Based Business approval is quick and easy!

The Army’s new standardized HBB application template streamlines the approval process.  Of course, installations are still required to adhere to local and state laws and regulations regarding home business operations, so check into those, too.

Step 1: Obtain the HBB Application.

Walter J. Nagorski Golf Course

 

Nestled in the foothills of Fort Shafter valley, Nagorski Golf Course is a 9 hole course open to the public. With its chipping facility and practice greens, Nagorski is the perfect place for beginners to learn the game of golf, as well as for seasoned players to keep their games honed.

Built in the 1940's, the lower area of the course (holes 2 and 3) was built over an old emergency landing strip that was used in WWII. The sign designating it as Putnam Airfield still stands as a testament to the heritage of the area.

Today, Nagorski Golf Course still provides a challenge with its undulating fairways, dramatic elevation changes, small greens and breathtaking views of downtown Honolulu and Diamond Head. Come out and challenge yourself today!
