TOP STORY >>Housing is in your hands

Now is your chance to enhance your housing environment. The Housing Office is currently conducting an Air Force Housing Requirements and Market Analysis Survey in order to identify your housing preferences and the housing conditions in the area.

The web-based survey can be accessed at and takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. The password is litt9552. “The Air Force is working hard to provide you with the best housing conditions possible.

Your participation is appreciated in helping to achieve this goal,” according to Peggy Eason, chief, Housing Assistance Section. “Whether you are Air Force or non-Air Force, whether you live on-base or off-base, accompanied or unaccompanied, we need everyone’s support in completing the survey.”

The strictly confidential survey directly affects the military housing environment at Little Rock AFB and the surrounding area.
It “determines the number of housing units needed on base and the availability of housing in the local community,” said Ms. Eason. Participation is essential to the program’s success.

A minimum of 1,000 local participants are needed by May 1 to ensure local housing decisions are based upon these inputs.
If the participation falls short, the Little Rock input will be omitted and “they will have to go by the Air Force average,” explained Mary Koorstad, Housing Asset Manager. “It will not take into consideration Little Rock’s specific needs.”

According to Ms. Koorstad, the more participants that take the survey will result in more satisfactory housing options.
If you have any questions or problems regarding the survey, please contact Mary Koorstad or Peggy Eason at 987-2358 or 987-6040.
