The standards applies to all Army facilities including Active, Reserve and National Guard Components on Army Installations, and serves as the primary authority for Army Family Housing worldwide.

Supporting facilities include site work; all required utility systems; storm drainage; street lighting; recreational elements; neighborhood and transportation amenities; parking; maintenance and management facilities; information systems; heating and air conditioning; and measures in accordance with the Department of Defense DoD Minimum Antiterrorism for Buildings standards. Accessibility for individuals with disabilities is provided in a percentage of the quarters.

Privatized housing construction is governed by RCI (Residential Communities Initiative) standards, not AFH Standards.
