The Department of Defense announced military families on average will receive a 3.8 percent increase in their housing allowance.
That translates to between $55 and $60 a month for military with dependents depending their rank. The basic allowance for housing is calculated on the median current renter’s market; an average of utilities; average renter’s insurance.
The increase does not apply to members reporting to new locations. Details on how the BAH is calculated is available HERE.
