Lincoln Military Housing owns the family housing and maintains, repairs and manages the Fort Sam Houston family housing community. Military personnel can opt to live in privatized housing by signing a tenant lease with Lincoln Military Housing. There are no application or deposit fees and an on-site maintenance team is available around the clock to resolve problems.

The Lincoln Military Housing community is comparable to housing off post but offers many amenities and support services, such as community events that provide residents of all ages with free, fun and educational events and activities. Community features include tot lots, playgrounds, pools, resident centers and more.

Those who choose to live in the community will sign a tenant lease agreement, typically for a one-year term, that includes a military clause and a lease termination clause. You pay your monthly rent by authorizing an allotment of your BAH to be paid directly to the resident center. If you move before the allotment start date, you will pay a prorated amount directly to the center. The tenant lease agreement will spell out the rent payment terms and conditions.
