We are excited to announce big changes are happening with payment options for residents at Corvias Military Living. You now have online and mobile rent payment options. This will save you time in your day and allow you to pay your rent 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from the comfort of your own home. If you are already set up with an allotment of your BAH going towards your rent each month, this will not apply to you. However, it may apply in the event you need to pay a prorated amount for rent upon move-in or when you move-out and wish to pay an outstanding balance. Click here for a summary of your options.

Corvias Military Living takes the safety of our residents seriously. In conjunction with National Safety Month, we would like to offer seven helpful tips to keep you and your family safe.
1. Sun Safety - Beginning the summer season with sunburn is no fun. To minimize your opportunity of becoming the sun’s next victory, come prepared with your SPF armor. You can also protect yourself by wearing protective clothing and a brimmed hat. Loading up on H20 is another way to stay cool and safe in the summer sun.
2. Water Safety- Never leave children unattended near any water to include: filled-buckets, bathtubs, toilets, wading or swimming pools. Wading pools should be empty and properly stored when not in use. A child can drown in 1 inch of water. Parents should stay within an arm’s length of young swimmers. Consider CPR certification to better prepare yourself in the event of an emergency.
3. Bike Safety- Always wear a properly fitted helmet when riding bikes, scooters or skateboards. Wear bright clothes and put reflectors on the bike so that you can be seen. Be sure to check bikes tires to ensure proper inflation. Young children should stick to sidewalks and paths when bike riding.
4. Playground Safety- Encourage your child to use the playground equipment properly. To prevent injuries don’t allow pushing or rough playing when at the playground. Always check the playground equipment in the summertime-it can get very hot. If you notice any issues with neighborhood playground equipment, please contact your community office.
5. Fire Prevention - All propane and charcoal grills are only permitted to be used outdoors and the Fire Department recommends grills be placed 25 feet from your home and are not to be used underneath an overhang. Allow coals to cool before properly disposing. Never store propane gas cylinders in buildings or garages.
6.Window Safety- Window safety- While enjoying fresh air in the warmer weather, remember that open windows pose a great fall risk to children. Window screens are designed to keep insects out, not to stop a child from falling. Moving furniture away from windows and properly supervising children greatly reduces risk.
7.Speed limits - Please be mindful of speed limits as children may be playing outdoors or neighbors on walks, riding bikes, etc.
Keep curtains and shades closed to help keep sunlight out. The sun can increase the temperature in a room by several degrees.
