On-post family housing consists of one and two-story single-family homes and duplexes. Some homes on post date from 1884 and are part of the old Calvary Fort now listed as a state and national historic landmark. Through the Army’s Residential Communities Initiative (RCI), Fort Huachuca is constructing new homes and performing various levels of renovation to the existing units over the next five years.
Fort Huachuca family housing is privatized under the RCI. The program’s goal is to improve the quality of life for military families by offering safe, affordable and attractive residential communities. The Army chose Michaels Military Housing, LLC (MMH) as the development partner to take on this mission at Fort Huachuca. The Army and Michaels came together to form a new entity to manage and maintain the housing – Mountain Vista Communities, LLC (MVC).
Although MVC is your landlord, MMH handles all of the day-to-day construction while housing operations are professionally managed by Jillden Realty Management Company. MMH is solely owned, managed and operated by Michaels Development Company and its affiliate, Jillden Realty Management. MMH has been organized and resourced to be a long-term partner with the Military Housing Privatization Initiative. Castle & Cooke and R. L. Workman Homes, the general contractors, are constructing new homes. Prestige Renovations, also a general contractor, is renovating current housing to bring them up to community standards.
MMH has started its 50-year plan for the development, construction and operations of 1064 privatized family housing units on Fort Huachuca. Currently there are 1120 units available, 170 designated for officers and 950 for enlisted personnel.
All Military members with families are required by the Department of the Army to report to the Housing Services Office (HSO) as part of in-processing. Military personnel must sign in for duty and have their permanent change-of-station (PCS) orders before they can apply for on-post housing. Fort Huachuca homes are available to military members from all service branches assigned to Fort Huachuca.
As new families arrive at Fort Huachuca, they are directed to the housing office where they are greeted by a team of professionally trained housing counselors. Both MVC and HSO offices are located at Building 52065, Smith Street. Normal operating hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 520-515-9000.
All residents who own pets must complete a Pet Addendum as a condition for having the pet in Mountain Vista Communities. Pets are defined as a dog, cat, bird, guinea pigs, hamsters or fish ordinarily kept in the house for pleasure or companionship, rather than commercial purposes. Animals trained and certified to assist handicapped residents are not considered to be pets but are considered trained companions and are not limited by the pet policies or restricted or limited by the restricted breed policy. Restricted breeds are defined as any dog of a breed (including a mixed breed) that is deemed “aggressive or potentially aggressive” unless the dog is a certified military working dog that is being boarded by its handler/trainer. The policy defines aggressive or potentially aggressive breeds of dogs as Pit Bulls (American Staffordshire Bull Terriers or English Staffordshire Bull Terriers), Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, Chows, and wolf hybrids. Two pets per home are permitted. Fish, guinea pigs, caged birds and hamsters are an exception unless they are a hazard or nuisance. No pet will be permitted in on-post housing that is included on the breed restriction list. To view the entire Pet policy and our housing policies please visit the Mountain Vista webpage.
The waiting times for assignment to on-post housing varies by rank and bedroom requirements.

Exceptional Family Member Housing
Exception Family Member Housing units are available. Currently five percent of the homes have been modified to accommodate the needs of families. No priority policy for special needs exists; however, should available housing not contain adequate accessibility features, Mountain Vista Communities will work with the family to determine what accommodations can be made to improve accessibility. Structural modifications may be significantly limited in homes with historical designation. Generators are not available to units for powering medical equipment through Mountain Vista Communities. Coordination by the Soldier with TRICARE for authorization and approval would be required. Units are equipped with air-conditioning for families with respiratory problems. Families with exceptional family members will never be denied housing solely because the housing lacks accessibility features. The final decision to accept housing rests solely with the family.
Floor plans for units with accessibility features are identical to other units and are available for viewing online.
