Living on-base offers service members convenient and assessable homes in a community where their families can flourish. The privatized military housing community at Fort Polk is no exception.
Corvias, in partnership with the U.S. Army, has put families first by investing in the community to ensure that military families enjoy industry leading accommodations and benefits on-base.
The U.S. Army reports:
The stress that comes with moving can be minimized when deciding to live on post. Tenants can benefit from the amenities offered such as community centers, pools and newly renovated homes. On-post residents can expect their commutes from home to be shorter and more relaxed when not having to enter the installation’s access points.
Spc. Ayanna Rich, stationed with the Shira Dental Clinic, Dental Activity, feels that living on post has made life easy for her and her 6-month-old daughter, Ariyah.
“I only have to drive 15 minutes max to get anywhere. I don’t feel rushed and there’s hardly ever any traffic,” Rich said.
…The community center in her neighborhood keeps her informed of upcoming events, activities and neighborhood news via email. “The neighborhood is safe and welcoming. The community center has been very helpful,” Rich said.
Utilities such as water, gas, and electricity are included when living on post. Weekly trash pick up is available as well.
In 2018, Corvias announced their renovation project for the installation. The project entailed rejuvenation for housing, upgraded base infrastructure and maintenance care for homes. Since then, Corvias has used solar energy solutions, and administered a stormwater management plan to help reduce pollution from stormwater runoff. These projects have helped reduce the carbon footprint of the base.
The campaign has put Families first and improved quality of life.
Public-private partnerships enabled by the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) allow for Corvias to lend private-sector expertise and ensure that military families receive the care and convenience that they deserve while living on-post.
