One way the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Europe District’s real estate team helps ensure housing is available for Soldiers and their families in Europe is through innovative build-to-lease programs like the one where construction, seen here January 22, 2022, is underway on more than 100 homes for Soldiers and their families off-post at U.S. Army Garrison Italy. Through programs like this one, private builders build housing off-post designed specifically for Soldiers and their families through agreements with the Army. In doing so, the builders are offered certain guarantees of tenants for a period of time after construction as long as the properties are properly maintained and continue to meet agreed upon standards.
