2020 JBLM OFF BASE HOUSING STUDY
Consultants from AHBL, Lisa Klein and Wayne Carlson briefed the SC on the final findings and recommendations. Affordability is less of an issue for military households. Based on prevailing sales prices and rental rates and the BAH for military personnel, approximately 88% of the total housing stock in the market area is affordable. The key challenge faced by military is finding available housing within a 30-minute drive given the structural supply limitations. Tom Knight stated that JBLM is in the process of realigning resources so that the Rental Partnership Program can be reactivated in the next 45 days. To access the entire study click here.
