Quality housing for Soldiers and their families contributes to Army readiness. Army leaders are committed to improving housing conditions.
"Our people deserve quality housing. We know there is more work to do, but we are making repairs more quickly, hiring more staff to oversee our housing contracts and working with our housing companies to invest more than a billion dollars of their funds into more renovations and new development."- Christine Wormuth, Secretary of the Army
- Army privatized, government-owned and government-leased housing tenants can rate their satisfaction with services, property, and the overall housing experience through the annual Army Housing Tenant Satisfaction Survey. Feedback from the confidential, online survey is critical to shaping future housing initiatives and services provided by the Army.
- U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) established a Housing Environmental Health Response Registry to address Army family concerns about Army family housing and related health issues.
- The Army is investing on average a billion dollars a year to renovate and build new barracks and Army-owned housing, while private housing companies are investing over $3 billion over the next five years into privatized family housing on installations.
- The Army plans to renovate or replace more than 1,200 barracks over a ten-year period. Installation leadership has completed 100% inspections of barracks; stood up 24/7 barracks maintenance hotlines; and launched phone apps to track work orders at every installation.
- The Army has fully implemented the Tenant Bill of Rights to further protect Soldiers and families from any unfair practices.
- The Army has instituted new oversight procedures to monitor living conditions and ensure prompt and effective maintenance needs and overall service quality.
- Army housing officials clearly explain tenants’ rights in a plain-language brief given to every new tenant at lease signing and again at the 30-day mark.
- The Army established 24-7 hotlines, launched Army Housing Online User Services mobile app available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store with information on Army housing (family, unaccompanied and off-post), and holds quarterly town hall meetings at every installation. For more housing information at each installation, visit the Army Housing Online User Services website.
