The Armed Forces home ownership scheme pilot is designed for full-time, permanent members of the Armed Forces, with between four and six years' service, who intend to remain in the Armed Forces and buy a property in England.

Former service personnel are not eligible to apply to join the Armed Forces home ownership scheme pilot but retain their key worker status for the first 12 months after leaving the Armed Forces, allowing them priority access to other government affordable housing initiatives.
