Military BAH Rates - Omaha Basic Allowance For Housing


Omaha, Nebraska VA BAH Rates


Omaha, VA BAH Rates



Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is a United States military privilege given to many military members. It was previously called Basic allowance for quarters (BAQ) and is administered by the Defense Travel management Office (DTMO)

How VA BAH Rates Work


What are BAH Rates?
Basic Allowance for Housing is money given to active military members so they can provide a home or housing for their wife or husband, children, and themselves or dependents in general. It is a benefit given it the military member isn't an occupant of the military quarters or barracks provided on base.

There are no taxes charged to BAH and it is paid on a monthly basis to those who have qualified.

Three Factors that Determine Amount of VA BAH:
1. The rank or the pay grade of the military individual that BAH applies to. The higher the rank and the higher the pay grade the higher the BAH.
2. U.S. Location - The main point of BAH is to match the average monthly rent in the area where the member is stationed, thus more expensive regions have a higher BAH rate. And in a vice versa scenario the lower the regions average housing the lower BAH rates tend to be. VA BAH rates will match the housing industry in a given region.
3. Family members or dependents are the third factor of VA BAH rates. It the military member has dependents the BAH rate will be higher to help with taking care of the dependents.

So what doesn't affect the amount received from VA BAH rates?


The number of dependents of the given military individual. If they have one dependent or five dependents doesn't matter. If they have one they will receive more money, but it doesn't keep increasing.
  • The actual amount that the rent or housing payment costs
  • The housing unit's size. This is unlike other calculations like HUD's FMR
  • Determining VA BAH Allowances


Location Based Calculations for VA BAH Rates


Every location in the U.S. has a BAH, including those without a significant military population. Non-military areas are combined with similar priced rental markets based on U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD)'s Fair Market Rent (FMR) data, and then use same RDN BAH source data available for similar areas. These comparably priced groups are called "County Cost Groups" (CCGs). There are 39 CCGs in the U.S, consisting of half of all counties (about 1,500) containing less than two percent of the uniformed services' population eligible to receive BAH.

Who is eligible for BAH?


A member assigned to permanent duty within the 50 United States, who is not furnished Gov't housing, is eligible for BAH, based on the member's rank, dependency status, and permanent duty station zip code. A member stationed overseas (except in Hawaii and Alaska), including U.S. territories and possessions, who is not furnished Government housing, is eligible for an Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA) based on the member's dependency status. If a member with dependents (except for a member paying child support) is serving an unaccompanied overseas tour, the member is eligible for BAH at the with-dependent rate, based on the dependent's U.S. residence zip code, plus FSH at the OCONUS PDS, if the member is not provided Government housing overseas.
