This thesis investigates three of the options available to provide adequate and affordable family housing to Navy families in the continental United States. Current Department of Defense policy is compared to both the public/private option and the downsizing of housing assets (with pay and allowance changes) option. Quantitative and qualitative issues are addressed, as are the advantages and disadvantages of each option. As a result of this analysis, this study recommends that the Department of Defense revise the Variable Housing Allowance (VHA) determination procedures, revise the housing deficit determination procedures, and eliminate the scoring of public/private ventures. Further, this study concludes that the Department of Defense has an economic justification for providing on-base housing. Efforts should be directed toward •right-sizing• housing assets rather than downsizing, with careful scrutiny given to the revitalization backlog.
