Latest Survey Shows Widespread Problems in Military Housing | Military

As Congress and the Defense Department move to improve housing conditions for troops and military families, an advocacy group has released more details on the state of military homes, from those who reside in them.

According to a Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN) survey, more than 16,000 military family members reported dirty and unsafe conditions on more than 160 military bases.

New details from the survey show that 93% of respondents lived in homes managed by just six private companies and 84% of tenants had “very negative, negative or neutral” experiences in base housing, with those who said their feelings were “neutral” providing largely negative feedback regarding repairs and remediation, mold, dirty homes on move-in day and shoddy construction.
