BAH is an allowance to offset the cost of housing when you do not
receive government-provided housing. Your BAH depends upon your
location, pay grade and whether you have dependents. BAH rates are set
by surveying the cost of rental properties in each geographic location.
Therefore, BAH rates in high-cost areas will be much greater than those
in low-cost areas. BAH rates are published on the Defense Travel
Management Office Web page.
Additionally, there are different types of BAH to compensate for special situations. For more details, choose from below.
