Quality Communities for Army Families
The PAL program is a partnership between the Army and private industry to improve the condition of on-post lodging facilities and provide for their long-term sustainment.
Privatization under the PAL initiative gives the Army the ability to leverage private sector capital and best business practices, providing quality facilities today that will be sustained throughout the next 50 years
Working together, we can make a difference in the lives of thousands of Soldiers and families each year!
