What can you tell us about your objectives?
The objective of this goal is to track and achieve 51 Military Family Housing Initiative (MHPI) improvement tasks by the end of 2021. Another objective is to implement all rights as stated in the MHPI Tenant Bill of Rights, signed in February 2020 by the Secretary of the Air Force.

Why is Improving Housing for Airmen and Families important to AFIMSC?
This goal is nested in AFMC strategy by ensuing our military families are living in safe, habitable homes. Housing is an emotional trigger; when our Airmen are satisfied with their housing experience, this leads to a more productive work life balance. This is especially true as families live in the age of COVID.

How does your goal support AFMC, Air Force and National Defense Priorities?
This goal takes care of our most valuable resource, Airmen and their families, with this ethos echoed throughout all echelons starting with the Air Force Priority of Growing Strong Leaders and Resilient Families. We are building a trusting relationship with our Airmen by holding project owners accountable for maintaining safe homes where our Airmen live.

How are you measuring success?
Success is being measured by tracking and achieving 51 MHPI improvement tasks by December 2021 and implementing all tenant rights as stated in the MHPI Tenant Bill of Rights.
