When planning for a move with the military, you might consider moving into government housing. Government housing is owned and maintained by the Department of Defense and is typically on the installation. Eligibility and availability for this type of housing may vary by service member, family size and installation.

Fort Sam Houston
All soldiers desiring on-post housing must complete a housing application prior to being placed on the waiting list. When a home becomes available, Lincoln Military Housing will contact the soldier and make an offer. If the soldier accepts the home, he/she must sign a lease. The lease will authorize the start of the current resident's basic allowance for housing and the start of an allotment to pay the monthly rent. The rent will equal the BAH with dependents for the senior service member authorized to live in the family housing unit.
Soldiers may submit an advance packet for placement in housing prior to their arrival to Fort Sam Houston. Upon arrival to the base, the soldier will report to LMH in Building 367 to move his/her name from the advance list to the actual list and check on the status of a home.
Air Force Housing
Visit the Air Force housing website to find your new home with the Air Force. This website serves as a one-stop shop for airmen and their families to obtain information about the housing options and support services available to them at Air Force bases worldwide.
Housing Flexibility During Permanent Change of Station within the United States
Housing flexibility for certain armed forces members with dependents, permanent change of station within the United States implements a change to the joint travel regulations that state that a service member of the armed forces on a PCS may be allowed housing flexibility to support the advanced or delayed travel of their dependents for certain reasons. Those reasons include spouse employment, dependent education, enrollment in the Exceptional Family Member Program or caring for a family member with a chronic or long-term illness.
The law has a covered relocation period of 180 days prior to and after the service member’s departure date from the old duty station and this period may be extended or shortened. The member may request a basic allowance for housing at the old or new permanent duty station or at the dependent’s location before the covered relocation period began.

The Residential Community Initiative is a family housing privatization program. RCI is a Department of the Army program designed to enhance the quality-of-life for service members and their families by improving the existing on-post family housing conditions, eliminating any housing shortages and improving neighborhood amenities (playgrounds, outdoor athletic courts, walking and running trails and more). Under this program, Fort Sam Houston housing was privatized.
The privatization of the housing, which took effect on March 1, 2005, is a partnership between the Army and Lincoln Military Housing, which owns and operates military housing on post, is called Fort Sam Houston Family Housing. The FSHFH partnership will construct, improve and maintain FSHFH for the next 50 years, and assume responsibility and control over every aspect of family housing operations on post. The operation and maintenance of our family housing has been transferred to LMH, which manages FSHFH. RCI provides oversight of LMH.
Housing for single service members is controlled by each unit. New dormitories are also being built. There are different configurations for the rooms depending on rank and unit. The most common type is 1+1 where each soldier will have his/her individual bedrooms but will share a kitchenette and bathroom. All rooms are furnished with a bed, a refrigerator and microwave, a chest of drawers, a nightstand, an armoire and a desk. Unaccompanied soldiers are required to stay at the barracks. E-6 and above have the option of getting apartments upon approval.
NOTE: No generators on housing. If needed must apply for exception to policy with housing office.
A soldier may voluntarily request priority housing based on Exceptional Family Member Program status. Lincoln Military Housing will refer the soldier to the Residential Communities Initiative office to complete a housing priority placement packet. Soldiers requiring priority housing placement may request a sample packet from the RCI operations manager by calling 210-221-2250/1983.
