Massachusetts Housing Allowance for 2016

Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is a reimbursement paid to active military personnel living with the U.S. but not living in government furnished housing such as barracks.

Your monthly BAH pay is based on your location, rank and dependency status. The country is divided into 381 Military Housing Areas (MHAs). MHAs are named after the closest military base or major city. These differing locality rates allow for granular calculation of average cost of renting in your area.
