The Residential Community Initiative is a family housing privatization program. RCI is a Department of Defense program designed to enhance the quality of life for service members and their families by improving the existing installation family housing conditions, eliminating any housing shortages and improving neighborhood amenities (i.e., playgrounds, outdoor athletic courts, walking and running trails, etc.).
The privatization of Fort Sam Houston housing took effect on March 1, 2005. The partnership, between the Department of the Army and Lincoln Military Housing, is called Fort Sam Houston Family Housing, LP, which owns and operates military housing on post. The FSHFH partnership will construct, improve and maintain Fort Sam Houston Family Housing for the next 50 years, and assume responsibility and control over every aspect of the family housing operation on post. The operation and maintenance of family housing is managed by Lincoln Military Housing, which manages Fort Sam Houston Family Housing; RCI provides oversight of LMH.
All soldiers desiring on-post housing must complete a housing application prior to being placed on the waiting list. When a home becomes available, LMH will contact the soldier and make an offer. If the housing is accepted, a lease must be signed. The lease will authorize the start of basic allowance for housing and start an allotment to be paid as monthly rent. The rent will equal the BAH at the "with dependents" rates for the senior service member authorized to live in the home.
Lackland Air Force Base:
Lackland Air Force Base housing has a waiting list, is privatized and is managed by Balfour Beatty. Make sure you go to your losing base housing office to have your name added to the waiting list.

The wait list depends on rank, number of dependents and type of housing. In the surrounding community, there are numerous apartments and single dwellings to rent as well as to buy.
