About the Military Housing Association
Building strong communities is essential for a stronger, more resilient Armed Forces. The core goal of the Military Housing Association (MHA) is to provide high-quality housing, community amenities, and responsive property management services for service members and their families living in privatized military housing communities. The MHA was formed to provide a forum of industry leaders in the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) to work together and with military families, the Department of Defense (DoD) and Congress to continuously improve the quality and sustainability of housing available to service members and their families. The MHA represents leading members of the military housing public-private partnership industry, including Balfour Beatty Communities, Corvias, Hunt Military Communities, Liberty Military Housing, Mayroad, Patrician Management, and The Michaels Organization. All companies that participate in the MHPI have been invited to join MHA.
MHPI was designed to provide privatized housing for approximately 30% of the service members assigned to a specific military installation, which means approximately 70% of service members live in housing within the private sector. Most service members are not required to live in privatized housing. All service members receive a Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) that allows them to pay rent, whether they chose to live on or off base in a local community. Rental revenues are used by MHPI members to fund operating expenses and meet debt service requirements. Companies use net operating revenues to improve existing homes and infrastructure and build new assets for communities. The cash flow and returns from the partnerships are reinvested in the program, ensuring the long-term financial health of the MHPI.
