Commercial Solicitation and Home-Based Business
We hope you find this webpage to be resourceful as it contains step by step instructions, regulations, and policies that pertain to Home Based Businesses (HBB) currently operating on Camp Zama and Sagamihara Family Housing Area. We have also included a process map for each section to enhance awareness and minimize confusion. Our goal is to work with all applicants to ensure compliance, offer resources, and remind approved vendors of upcoming license expiration dates.
Before you begin, please note...
Included in the SecArmy Memorandum for HBBs, specifically, are the following paragraphs:
- Paragaph 3 c. "Persons who reside in family housing on an Army installation and work remotely out of their residence (such as a consultant, freelance artist, or teleworker), or who operate their own business exclusively through online means (for example, eBay or Etsy) are NOT considered HBBs and do NOT require approval to operate."
- Paragraph 6 e. "HBB owners residing in privatized on-post housing must obtain approval to operate in writing from the community manager before submitting a request to the senior commander."
