A military family advocacy group has reported more details from the nation’s military families on the condition of privatized military housing, according to Military.com.
The Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN) surveyed more than 16,000 military family members across the country who responded with various reports of dirty and unsafe conditions on more than 160 military bases, the advocacy group said.
The latest survey details revealed that 84% reported “very negative, negative or neutral” base housing experiences.
Nearly 57% of survey respondents reported problems with maintenance and repairs, nearly 30% reported problems with mold and 25% reported filth as an issue, according to MFAN.
A preliminary report in February had highlighted problems including maintenance issues and poor responsiveness and unsatisfactory living conditions such as mold, lead-based paint issues, pest infestations and faulty wiring, as On Base reported.
The highest privatized housing satisfaction rate was at Naval Base San Diego, Calif.
