Family Housing (FH) at NSA Mechanicsburg

Privatized Housing

The local HSC processes applications and refers personnel to the PPV property management company.  The property management company assigns personnel to PPV housing and should be contacted for maintenance and resident matters.  However, the HSC is your advocate, and you should contact them if you are not satisfied. 

Additionally, you can obtain application forms on the above resources tab, at your nearest HSC, or you can contact the HSC to have one mailed or emailed to you.

NSA Mechanicsburg has partnered with Liberty Military Housing to offer military families outstanding housing choices.  Contact the HSC to get the most current projection of housing availability and wait list information.
For additional contact information, floor plans, pet policies, full resident guidelines and other neighborhood specific information regarding PPV housing, visit the Liberty Military Housing website.

Community Housing

The HSC maintains a current database of available off-base community rental properties for homes, apartments and townhomes.  Housing referral professionals inspect these rental properties for suitability.  The HSC assists with locating off-base housing in the local area, including:  |  Basic allowance for housing  |  Lease reviews  |  Issue resolution  |  Move-in or move-out inspections upon request  |  Rental Partnership Program  |  Short-term rental or lease information
