Before the MHPI, the DoD identified 180,000 housing units in need of improvement or replacement. The military faced a $20 billion housing maintenance backlog that would take 30 years to resolve using the traditional methods of contracting and construction. Since 1996, the MHPI has constructed more than 75,000 new homes and renovated 50,000 additional homes. The program has saved taxpayers billions of dollars by leveraging $4 billion in government funding into more than $32 billion that has been invested in military housing by private real estate developers. Today, the MHPI encompasses more than 80 PPV projects and 200,000 housing units across the country. MHPI partners are also using private capital to improve communities through the construction of new homes, renovation of existing homes, and enhancement of amenities.
