In Case You Missed It: Service members and their families are reading about the affordable, high-quality housing options provided by Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) partners in Military Families Magazine this week.

In “Communities designed for modern active-duty military families,” readers learn about how privatized military housing communities provide best-in-class homes and communities designed for active-duty military families, innovative property management services that put military families first, and value for the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) in today’s competitive housing market.

Featured content highlights:

…Almost one-third of active-duty military families live in Military Family Housing, which can be found on over 150 installations across the country. Military Family Housing communities are made possible through partnerships between each branch of the Armed Services and highly experienced residential real estate developers who design, build, and manage homes that fit the needs of today’s military family. These business partnerships enable military housing providers to build new homes and continuously improve existing homes with attractive upgrades, including modern floor plans and new appliances, designed with the needs of military families in mind.

Prospective residents benefit from a simplified leasing process that leverages a Universal Lease across all privatized military housing communities, supporting first-time applicants and providing a smooth transition process for families who frequently receive Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. …Offering innovative approaches to property management services is at the heart of what we do and helps keep military families well-connected to housing providers when they need them most.

… As housing prices continue to rise, with the median rental price increasing 16% since January, many military families are struggling to find affordable housing options and need better options now more than ever. When you choose to live in a military housing community, your Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) covers the total cost of living in the community – eliminating out-of-pocket expenses.
