Schedule your 100% on-post housing inspection now

 by Robert Timmons, Fort Jackson Public Affairs

On-post housing residents can now schedule congressionally-mandated inspections of their homes. These inspections are set for August, Fort Jackson housing officials said. 

The inspection mandate was included in Public Law No. 116-92, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020. The NDAA states the inspections will be conducted by an independent, third-party contractor to ensure the quarters are safe and habitable.

HOUSING QR.jpg“Congress has mandated these inspections for the protection of Department of Defense families,” said Sgt. 1st Class Shaka-Mikal Webber, military housing liaison. “The results of these inspections will provide Congress the information needed to properly address funding for housing on military installations, the proper management by commercial partners like (Fort Jackson Family Homes), and other factors concerning communities on federal property.”

In fact, the inspections can be easily scheduled by the tenant.  The two-hour blocks of inspections can be scheduled by scanning the QR code, which can also be found on publicly posted signs and door hanger flyers.
