Housing Privatization

Before military housing privatization, approximately 60 percent of homes at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, fell below established Air Force housing standards — some were even termite infested. Following the Military Housing Privatization Initiative of 1996, Lackland was selected as the Air Force’s inaugural privatized project. The top photo shows a government-owned and operated home at Lackland prior to privatization. Below is a privatized home today at Lackland: constructed, owned and managed by Balfour Beatty Communities. (Courtesy photos)
