This thesis examines the costs and the benefits of alternative approaches to managing DOD family housing assets. The two approaches examined are Variable Housing Allowance and Fair Market Rental. These two alternatives seek to alleviate the inequities of the present housing system in dramatically different ways. While a Variable Housing Allowance would be more advantageous to the service member, a Fair Market Rental system is being promoted within Congress and the Executive Branch. An approach which combines elements of both the Variable Housing Allowance and Fair Market Rental is recommended as the most viable and equitable alternative to the present family housing system.
