Through this privatization effort, homes are organized into six neighborhoods with each having its own onsite management and maintenance staff. The master-planned neighborhoods are designed around greens and connected by jogging trails and bike paths. The company is replacing 2,488 existing homes, will maintain and repair 112 historic and 262 post-1995 homes, and add 308 for a total of 3,170 homes.

Current Family Housing Family quarters are authorized for military personnel in all pay grades for those who are on assignment orders for duty at Ft. Meade.
